Every person’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are dedicated to oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t impact your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause trouble.
The first sign of gingivitis is swollen sore gums.
Gingivitis is the term for Stage 1 gum disease. At Kernagis Dental Excellence, we routinely discover gingivitis in patients who are not even aware that they have the condition.
It is critical for people to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. Sore, swollen, or bleeding gums are a tip-off that something is out of order.
