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.
To learn more about gingivitis, you can consult your dentist and watch
this video. This video discusses the prevalence of gum disease and how
it develops from plaque left on the teeth. You’ll also learn about
the risk factors that may increase your likelihood of developing gingivitis
and you’ll get some tips on preventing recurrences of gum disease.
