What Is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis, also known as periodontal disease, is characterized by plaque-filled teeth and inflammation of the surrounding gum tissue that often causes tenderness, swelling, redness, and bleeding. With the help of a dentist, you can successfully manage and treat Gingivitis over time. Gingivitis can progress to period until is if left untreated.

What Causes Gingivitis?

Everyone has millions of bacteria in their mouths – it’s a fact! In most cases, these bacteria are natural and safe. Gingivitis occurs when harmful bacteria produce toxins and irritate the gums, resulting in a sticky film. Plaque forms on the teeth and gums, and bacteria can infect the gums when plaque is allowed to build up. A number of other factors can also cause Gingivitis.

What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Gingivitis?

People often don’t realize they have Gingivitis because it doesn’t always cause pain. Symptoms may worsen over time, leading to:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Swelling or puffiness of gums
  • Pain or soreness

Gingivitis can be restricted to just a few teeth, or it can become widespread. Knowing how to recognize the signs and seeing your dentist regularly for checkups is important since it doesn’t have clear-cut symptoms.

How Do You Diagnose And Treat Gingivitis?

When diagnosed and treated by Perry Family Dentistry, Gingivitis is easily treatable. To determine if you are at risk, your dentist should check your mouth and gums every year. If your dentist suspects you of having gum disease, they will examine your mouth for the following:

  • Loose teeth
  • Bleeding
  • Gums separating from teeth
  • Signs of infection, like swelling or redness

To treat Gingivitis, you need to eliminate plaque from your gums and teeth daily. Your dentist or hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove any plaque, stains, and tartar.
