WHAT IS GINGIVITIS?

By: Smileway Dental

Gingivitis is a mild, early form of gum disease that occurs when bacteria and plaque build up in the mouth and lead to infection and make the gum red, swollen and tender.
There some cause can lead to gum diseases such as;

  • Poor oral hygiene such as not brushing and flossing in daily habits that can be factor for gingivitis to develop.
  • Bad habits such as smoking make it harder for gum tissue to repair itself.
  • Family history of dental disease can be a factor for the development of gingivitis

Gum disease may progress painlessly and certain symptoms may point to some form of the gum disease. The symptoms such as;

  • Gum bleeding during and after brushing
  • Red swollen gum
  • Receding gum
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth

Gingivitis is treated by removing any plaque because there is no damage to the teeth or bone yet. It will need removed professionally by dentist.
It can be prevented by improving the overall health of your mouth through

  • Brushing and flossing teeth after every meal
  • Eating healthy balanced diet
  • Avoid smoking

I can say from my own experience as a doctor, they are good. Appointments are kinda hard to get. Do you know why? You get what you want and what you need. Most likely you’ll leave the clinic with a smile on your face.

Definitely my best dental experience with Dr.Jon Low whose by far is one of the most attentive and gentle dental doctor. His approach to dental care is immaculate and he pays the most attention to the finest detail.
