What is

Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is a common gum disease that infects the gums. It is most commonly caused by plaque build up and can be treated by diligent dental hygiene.

Symptoms of gingivitis are redness, tenderness, and swelling of the gums. Bleeding gums while brushing or flossing is also a common sign of gingivitis.

 If you notice these symptoms regularly occurring, give us a call and we will be happy to schedule a consultation. 

Treatment options for Gingivitis

Platinum Dental Daybreak believes that the best treatment option for gingivitis is prevention. It is critical to maintain regular dental hygiene, which includes brushing and flossing every day. Another way to prevent gingivitis is to visit your dental hygienist for checkups and cleanings. 

Take your diagnosis seriously so you can get your dental health back on track. Our team will help treat it by removing the plaque build up that is causing the gum infection and inflammation. Sometimes a mouth rinse will be prescribed but most often the symptoms will subside after the dental cleaning.
