FAQ: Gingivitis

 In Uncategorized

What do you know about gingivitis? ? You may have heard it on a mouthwash and/or toothpaste commercial on T.V.? It is a very common disease amongst Canadians and Americans. Food particles, plaque and tartar build-up causes gingivitis, which is the first stage of periodontal disease. The good news is that if gingivitis is diagnosed early, it can be easily treated and reversed.

Symptoms of gingivitis include red, swollen and/or tender gums. You may also notice that gums may bleed when you are brushing or flossing your teeth. Maintaining good hygiene habits will help you prevent gingivitis. We recommend professional dental cleanings for plaque that has built up and hardened (called tartar). Using a toothbrush and dental floss alone is not enough to remove plaque and tartar build-up. For a dental cleaning appointment in Saint-Lambert, contact us Centre Dentaire Saint-Lambert today.
