Gingivitis is a gum disease that causes inflamed gums and even bad breath. With over 200,000 cases in the United States per year, gingivitis is common and develops from plaque build-up on your teeth.
Symptoms of gingivitis can be painful and uncomfortable. Swollen, tender, receding, and bleeding gums are typical signs of gingivitis and should be addressed by your health professional quickly for treatment. Platinum Dental Logan is devoted to improving your oral hygiene and health. If you have any of these symptoms make an appointment with us and revitalize your gums right away!
How Is Gingivitis Treated?
The good news is that gingivitis is treatable, and can go away fairly quickly if it is cared for properly. We encourage our patients to take preventative measures like regular brushing and flossing to decrease the likelihood of gingivitis.
Gingivitis treatment is simple, but important. Recovery begins when you make a visit to your local dentist and have the built-up plaque removed from your teeth. This provides some relief to your gums and eliminates the bulk of bacteria. Afterwards, it’s important to brush and floss daily. We recommend antibacterial toothpaste and mouthwash to help kill remaining bacteria and heal your gums faster.
How can I avoid
- Practice good oral hygiene
- Brush and floss multiple every morning and night
- Rinse your mouth with antibacterial mouthwash
- Regular dental visits
