What Exactly Is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is a condition many people have heard of but don’t actually understand. Because it is such a pervasive problem, understanding gingivitis is crucial to your oral and overall health. Gingivitis is the medical term for a mild form of gum disease. It is triggered by poor oral hygiene and typically causes swollen, tender gums that bleed when you brush and floss. Although improving your brushing and flossing habits can often control gingivitis, it can advance to a more serious form of gum disease without dental care. Learn more about gingivitis in this infographic from Eagle Falls Dentistry. In addition to general dentistry and cosmetic treatments such as teeth straightening, we also provide periodontics in Bloomingdale, IL to prevent gingivitis from worsening and leading to tooth loss and other health problems.
