Gingivitis: The First Form of Gum Disease
When we’re talking about gum disease, it’s better to treat it sooner than later. Gum disease, which is also defined as periodontal disease and which comes in different levels, is reversible in its early stages. Read on to learn more about gingivitis, the first level of gum disease, and what our dentist might be able to do to treat it.
In gingivitis, the gums have been disturbed due to bacteria developed by food remnants left in your mouth after chomping and not dislodged during brushing. Symptoms of gingivitis include swollen and slightly bloody gums that might damage when they’re pressed. Fortunately, with a quick procedure from the staff at Rhome Family Dentistry, gingivitis is normally reversible. When you come see us, our oral assistants or our dentist will give your oral cavity a professional cleaning and optional gum treatment. With their expertise and a little discipline to brush and floss twice per day, you’ll probably be on the way to gum disease recuperation and a brighter smile.
