What Exactly Is Gingivitis?

Do you have bleeding, red, or inflamed gums? It’s time to make an appointment with a dentist near Bloomingdale, preferably one who offers periodontics. Your dentist may determine that you have gingivitis, which is the first stage of gum disease. Gum disease is a serious problem that may eventually lead to tooth loss, but the good news is that it’s easy to treat when it’s detected before the problem has progressed beyond gingivitis.
