Gingivitis / Periodontitis
Gingivitis is a very common and mild form of gum (periodontal) disease. It is most often caused by an inflammation of the gum tissue.
Clinical symptoms are red, swollen, bleeding or else irritated gums. If not treated, it can lead to periodontitis – at the very worst tooth loss. The most common reason for gingivitis is poor oral hygiene. Other causes could be smoking and genetical heritage. The patient is often not aware of the disease, as it does not hurt, and it is often spotted only at the visit to the dental clinic.
To keep away bacteria and periodontitis, we recommend regular check-ups at the clinic as well as daily brushing and flossing.
