Gingivitis

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This four-page handout educates people about gingivitis, which is a form of gum disease that occurs when plaque builds up between the teeth and gums that can lead to infection. It explains that gingivitis is more common in people who do not practice daily brushing and flossing, and clarifies that if it is not treated it can lead to serious gum disease or tooth loss. The document describes signs and symptoms of gingivitis, and discusses its care and prevention, recommending that people see their dentist every six months for cleaning and plaque removal.
