What is

Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is a common disease that infects the gums. One common way to get gingivitis is plaque build up.

Symptoms include gum redness, tenderness, and swelling. If you have gingivitis your gums will often bleed when brushing or flossing your teeth. 

If you notice these symptoms regularly, please give us a call and we can schedule an appointment with one of our professionals. 

I have Gingivitis. Now what?

The best way to treat gingivitis is with diligent dental hygiene. This will help prevent your gums from developing a more extreme case of gum disease.

Once diagnosed with gingivitis, it is important to maintain excellent dental hygiene. Our team will also help treat it by removing the plaque buildup that cause it. Most of the time symptoms and soreness will subside after the teeth have been cleaned.
