Do you think that you are showing signs of gum tissue infections within your mouth? Do you often suffer from pain associated with your gums while eating, chewing, or brushing and flossing? If so, you may be suffering from gum disease. One of the early stages of gum disease is known as gingivitis.

Symptoms of gum disease are often present when gingivitis sets in. If you notice any signs of excessive redness or inflammation with your gums, you may be suffering from gingivitis. Additional symptoms include a recession of your gums away from your teeth, frequent bleeding from your mouth, bad breath even after continual treatments, and a heightened sensitivity with your gums.

Gingivitis prevention is important to prevent advanced stages of the disease progressing into full-blown gum disease. Oral health hygiene habits as well as lifestyle habits are all essential to ensure your smile has the best chance of success. This includes brushing and flossing daily, visiting your dentist for routine oral checkups and exams, and eliminating unhealthy habits from your life including chewing and smoking tobacco.
