The Signs of Gingivitis

Posted on: April 10th, 2020 | Posted by | Posted in Uncategorized

Gingivitis is known as the early stage of gum disease, a serious condition that affects the soft tissues surrounding your teeth. Hundreds of thousands of Americans suffer from gum disease, and for most patients, it is often preventable.

Before gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) sets in, its symptoms can be seen in the early signs of gingivitis. Early indicators of gingivitis include gums that bleed easily, bad breath, and red, swollen, and tender gums. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, a trip to the dentist is warranted. Working with a dental professional on a treatment plan can prevent the tissue around your teeth from becoming inflamed and infected.

There are some habits, medical conditions, and medications that increase your risk of gum disease.

  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Smoking
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Steroids
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer therapy drugs

While some of these risk factors are beyond your control, some can be eliminated to help keep teeth and gums clean and healthy. Talk to your dentist about preventing gingivitis today.
