Gingivitis is a gum disease that affects the gum and causes the gum to swell and develop inflammation. Untreated Gingivitis will cause tooth loss.
The leading cause of Gingivitis is poor oral hygiene. You can prevent Gingivitis at home by brushing twice a day, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.
You're an ideal candidate for Gingivitis treatment if you suffer from gum bleeding, inflammation, irritation, or swelling.

Patients who follow the dentist's treatment plan will experience recovery in two to three weeks. But a more severe case of Gingivitis will take longer to recover.
If Gingivitis is in the early stage, professional help from your dentist will help you treat it. But if the disease goes untreated, it will develop into Periodontitis, and at this stage, it can't be cured, only treated.
Following proper oral hygiene can prevent Gingivitis like brushing twice daily, flossing, and regular dental check-up for dental cleaning.
The most common cause of Gingivitis is the build-up of bacterial plaque between the teeth. Dental plaque happens naturally over time, and it happens when the bacteria attaches itself to the teeth' surface.
Over time the plaque can harden and develop into tartar near the gum base. Only through professional dental cleaning can it be removed and treated.
The build-up of plaque and tartar can trigger immune responses that lead to gingival or gum tissue destruction. Eventually, it may lead to further complications, including losing teeth.
