5 Tips to Prevent Gingivitis

Gingivitis is an infection in the mouth; it is a chronic bacterial infection that begins when the bacteria in plaque (the sticky film that constantly forms on teeth) causes inflammation of gum tissue.

Gingivitis is a mild form of periodontal disease that causes red, swollen, and bleeding gums, although initially it only brings minor discomfort if any discomfort at all.

Gingivitis is typically the result of insufficient oral hygiene. The good news is that gingivitis can be reversed with a proper oral home care regimen and professional treatment when needed.
