If untreated, inflammation and infection of the gums can lead to terrible oral health.
Also known as “non-destructive” periodontal disease, Gingivitis is the inflammation and infection of the gums and gum-line. Gingivitis effects the tissues of the tooth as well as the periodontal ligament, and in some cases, even the jaw bone can be affected in certain cases including periodontitis. Gingivitis is essentially the first early stage of periodontitis disease. Gingivitis is probably the single largest dental problem affecting people of all ages around the world. Studies have shown that over 20% of population may suffer from Gingivitis at some point in there lives.
Just one consultation with Dr. Racean can help you take the necessary measures to ensure you don’t become one of these “20 percenters.” If you are already suffering from symptoms of Gingivitis then we recommend you act immediately to address the problem before it becomes a serious dental concern.
