What Is Gingivitis?

Published on December 7, 2017

Plaque is a buildup of bacteria that grows on the surface of teeth. Allowing plaque to build up on the teeth and leaving it undisturbed can lead to a number of serious dental health issues.

One of the most common consequences of plaque buildup on the teeth is gingivitis. One of the common signs of gingivitis is an inflammation of the tissue surrounding the teeth, resulting in red puffy gums.

It is also very common for people to experience bleeding of the gums while brushing their teeth due to the inflammation caused by gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress into a more serious infection known as periodontitis.

At Kernagis Dental Excellence, we can provide you with the professional dental health care you need to avoid the buildup of plaque. We can also treat gingivitis to prevent any serious health risks to the teeth. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
