Gingivitis is a very common and mild form of gum (periodontal)
disease that causes irritation, redness and swelling (inflammation) of
your gums. Because gingivitis can be very mild, you may not be
aware that you have the condition. But it's important to take
gingivitis seriously and treat it promptly. Gingivitis can lead to much
more serious gum disease (periodontitis) and eventual tooth loss.
The most common cause of gingivitis is poor oral hygiene. Good oral
health habits, such as regular professional checkups and daily
brushing and flossing, can help prevent gingivitis.
When to see a dentist
Most dentists recommend regular checkups to identify gingivitis,
cavities (caries) and other dental conditions before they cause
troubling symptoms and lead to more-serious problems. Also schedule
an appointment with your dentist if you notice any signs and
symptoms of gingivitis. The sooner you seek care, the better your
chances of reversing damage from gingivitis and preventing its
progression to more-serious conditions.
