You May Have Gingivitis

Categories: Dental Health

Affordable Charlotte Dentistry Every person’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are committed to oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t affect your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause problems.

The first sign of gingivitis is swollen, sore gums.

Gingivitis is the term for Stage 1 gum disease. At Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte – Dr. Christopher A. Bowman, we routinely discover gingivitis in patients who are not even aware that they have the condition.

It is important for people to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. Sore, swollen, or bleeding gums are a tip off that something is wrong.
