What Is Gingivitis ?

Gingivitis is a mild case of gum disease and is reversible if treated in time. Gingivitis is caused by plaque buildup around the teeth and inside the gums, which causes inflammation. Plaque contains bacteria and the toxins they release cause the gum inflammation. Brushing and flossing daily will help keep plaque levels in check. The most important part of the fight against gum disease is your Biannual dental cleaning, this is when the dentist or hygienist can remove the stubborn supra gingival plaque. In most patient plaque tends to build up around the lower front teeth and the upper far back teeth these, areas should be focused on in your daily oral health routine.
