When you see your general dentistry provider for a dental cleaning and
checkup, your dentist takes a close look at your gums to ensure that they
are in good health. If he notices that your gums are red, swollen, or
bleed easily, then he may diagnose you with a condition called gingivitis,
which is the first stage of periodontal disease.
Watch this video to learn more about this oral health problem. When plaque
and film build up on your teeth, this causes your body to send extra blood
and healing cells to your gums. If the condition progresses, the gums
can lose their attachment to the teeth in a condition known as periodontitis.
