Treatment of Gingivitis

Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gums or gingiva. Gums that bleed during brushing and flossing or are red, swollen and tender may be suffering from gingivitis. Healthy gums do not bleed! We recommend maintaining routine dental cleaning appointments in order to prevent and treat gingivitis. Despite exceptional care of your teeth including excellent brushing and flossing, build-up will occur and needs to be removed by a professional before causing irritiation to the gums.
