What is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gum tissues surrounding the teeth, and is an early stage of gum disease.

If left untreated, gingivitis may progress to peridontitis, which can be a major cause of tooth loss in adults.

Gingivitis can sometimes be painless and, therefore, people may be unaware they have it. Visit your dentist for an assessment to learn more about gingivitis and good oral hygiene.
