Gingivitis As An Early Form Of Gum Disease

More than 75 percent of Indians over 35 have some form of gum disease and the most common one of all is gingivitis—the mildest form of periodontal disease. It results in red and swollen gums that bleed easily. Bad oral hygiene and poor dental care leads to this problem. It is usually caused by the growth of bacteria in your mouth which is not cleaned adequately and regularly. The direct cause of gingivitis is plaque—the soft, sticky, colorless film of bacteria that forms constantly on the teeth and gums.


The mouth is a busy place, with millions of bacteria constantly on the move. While some bacteria are harmless, others can attack the teeth and gums. While many of these bacteria are harmless, there are others that are equally harmful and will attack your teeth and gums and damage them.

Though it is possible to cure gingivitis, you can take simple measures to prevent it. With regular attention to oral care, and following a few simple steps, you can tackle the problem before it begins. Attention to everyday oral hygiene like brushing and flossing, coupled with professional cleaning twice a year, could be all that’s needed to prevent gum disease. The best way to prevent gingivitis is a program of good dental hygiene, one that you begin early and practice consistently throughout life. Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once to remove food particles and bacteria is good way to start.

Dental treatment for Gingivitis begins with removing all plaque and tartar that has built up on the teeth. This can take up to a few sessions. The dentist will then treat the roots of the teeth to ensure that every little bit of bacteria is removed. This treatment while effective may cause mild discomfort up to 48 hours after the procedure. Your dentist will also show you how to clean your teeth effectively and create an oral care regime to match your needs.

Gingivitis is an early sign of gum disease but thankfully if diagnosed in time will not result in any lasting damage. As discussed in this post, treatment is simple and easily accessible. If you notice any of the early signs of gingivitis such as tender or bleeding gums and foul smelling breath, don’t waste time and contact Dentzz immediately for a diagnosis.
