What is Gingivitis?
Gingivitis is the mildest form of periodontal disease and is completely reversible with professional treatment and good daily home care. Gingivitis causes the gums to become red, swollen and bleed easily. If gingivitis is left untreated, the infection can spread from the gums to the bone. This process begins to destroy the bone that supports the teeth.
