Information About Gingivitis

(also known as Gingival Problems)

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums surrounding the teeth due to improper cleaning of teeth resulting in a build up of plaque and tartar, or by injury to the gums from over-vigorous brushing. Systemic factors and general health can modify the tissue reaction to local irritants.
