Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gums. It can mean they’re puffy and tender to the touch, or that they bleed easily during brushing. Left untreated, gingivitis can lead to gum disease.
Why is gingivitis bad for me?
In its early stages, gingivitis is straightforward to reverse. But left untreated, it can cause permanent damage to the mouth and jaw, and eventually lead to loss of teeth.
How do I treat gingivitis?
The best way to stop gingivitis from becoming a problem is to brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day. It also helps to floss and use mouthwash. Prevention of gingivitis is better than curing it.
