When we’re talking about gum disease, it’s always better to catch it sooner than later. Gum disease, which is also known as periodontal disease and which can come in many different severities, is actually reversible in its early phases. Read below to learn a little more about gingivitis, the first phase of gum disease, and what our dentist may be able to do to help reduce it.
In gingivitis, the gums have been lightly disturbed due to acids developed by food debris left in your mouth after eating and not dislodged during brushing. Signs of gingivitis may include swollen and slightly bloody gums that may damage when they’re pressed. Fortunately, with a short service from the team at Pearl Smile Dental, gingivitis is regularly reversible. When you come see us, our oral assistants or our dentist will give your oral cavity a professional cleaning and optional gum cleaning treatment. With their expertise and a little discipline to brush and floss twice daily, you’ll probably be on the way to gum disease recovery and a brighter smile.
