Painful and sensitive
I have holes around my teeth next to my gums and it is very painful, the nerves are exposed, i brush as much as 5 times a day and floss.
It sounds like you are having some viral infection. Brushing will not be enough, and you may cause larger ulceration areas. You should visit a periodontist.
