DO I REALLY NEED A CLEANING? Gingivitis warning signs Gums that bleed easily Red, swollen, tender gums Gums that have pulled away from the teeth The good news is that beginning stage of gum disease, gingivitis, is preventable and reversible! On the other hand, the effects of advanced gum disease, periodontitis, are permanent and may be irreversible. Gum disease can lead to bone loss and tooth loss, as well as contribute to heart disease and other serious health issues. This means that gum disease at any stage can no longer be considered just a minor issue! Don't ignore the warning signs! Gingivitis develops when bacteria multiple and build up between your teeth and gums. If you notice repeated bleeding in your gums when you brush or eat, this signals a problem. Gingivitis is usually painless and most patients don't even realize they have a gum infection until it's diagnosed in our office. The sooner it's detected, the easier it is to treat and heal. Gingivitis is initiated by bacteria found in dental plaque and gum pockets. The problem is this film of bacteria re-forms almost as soon as you remove it! However, plaque build-up can be disrupted by brushing and flossing - preventing it from causing gum disease. Seventy-five percent of American adults have some form of gum disease.
