Gum Inflammation

Dental Img 4@2x

Inflamed gums are usually seen as redness and commonly known as gingivitis. Deepening of gingival pockets may also lead to swelling in some cases. If left untreated leads to bone loss and could cause early teeth loss. Inflammation of your gums may be caused by food getting trapped in between and underneath your gums which will also lead to bleeding and bad breath. Dental decay left untreated could also lead to swollen gums and tooth abscess. Lack of saliva or dryness of mouth and some medications could also lead to inflammation of gums.

How to Prevent Gum Infections?

Dental cleans to remove plaque and tartar can help in maintaining healthy gums. Home care with proper brushing and flossing regularly is also required. Lastly, we recommend regular visits to your dentist who could monitor your gum health.
