I sometimes get them when I don't change my toothbush often enough.  The bent bristles cuts my checks or gums, and I guess it gets infected.

i get them when i drink too many sugary alcoholic drinks such as alcopops and vodka red bull etc, apparently drinking through a straw can increase the chance of getting one as the straw sort of targets the sugar in to one area, also i get them if I'm sucking on boiled sweets or lollipops
