Feline stomatitis is a chronic inflammation of the soft tissues of the mouth (gingiva and mucosa). It is also known as gingivostomatitis, lymphoplasmacytic stomatitis, or more accurately--mucositis. The main cause is an altered immune response to oral bacteria. Without treatment, there is persistent pain, and gingival recession and bone loss from chronic inflammation. The first step in treating this disease is to decrease inflammation and to control pain.
