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

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven’t.

Having great experience so far. The doctor are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unncesssary treatment. The clinic is well lit and very clean๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. It is on the first and second so it will be a bit hard if you have a bad leg.

Surveyed few dentists before I decided to do my wisdom tooth surgery here. Very good service by Dr Edwin who was very gentle throughout the procedure. Most importantly, it was painless. Had good experience with the follow-up sessions too and hope to receive the same experience in my next visit. The nurses and receptionists are very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up for the good service and the will definitely come again.
