Healthy gums are just as important as healthy teeth! Many of our patients are unaware that they have or are at risk of gum disease! Poor oral health and some health conditions can contribute to gum disease. There are 2 main types of gum disease; Gingivitis and Periodontitis.
Gingivitis are the early signs of gum disease. It is a milder form that causes irritation, redness and swelling (inflammation) of your gingiva (the part of your gum around the base of your teeth). This is quite common but if left untreated can progress into periodontitis which is more severe.
These are some symptoms of Gingivitis:
Swollen and rounded gums
Bleeding when brushing
Gums feel tender to touch
PERIODONTITIS / PERIODONTAL / GUM DISEASE
