What is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is a very common and mild form of gum (periodontal) disease. Because gingivitis can be very mild, you may not be aware that you have the condition. It is due to the long-term effects of plaque deposits on your teeth. It can lead to much more serious gum disease and eventual tooth loss.

Diagnosis of Gingivitis

Diagnosis of Gingivitis is based on signs and symptoms you describe and an examination of your teeth, gums, mouth and tongue.

Precautions & Prevention of Gingivitis

Brush your teeth at least twice a day
Floss at least once a day
