Gingivitis

Persistent bad breath is often and indicator of gum disease. Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease and is reversible. However, if left untreated, gingivitis progresses to periodontitis. This causes bone loss around the teeth and eventually wiggly teeth. If you’re curious about how we measure the progression of gum disease and/or treat the issue, refer to the videos linked below or call us to arrange a dental examination and cleaning to protect against gingivitis and gum disease.
