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

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
