Gingivitis, What You Don’t Know Can Cost You

by Shearly (SU)
Gingivitis is a common gum disorder that causes red and inflamed gums, or gingiva. Patients with gingivitis may find that their gums bleed when they brush their teeth or that they have developed halitosis, or bad breath. They may also find that their gums are tender to the touch, or notice a reduction in their gums as they recede from the teeth. Although, in the very early stages symptoms can be so mild that they’re not so easily noticeable.
