Gum Treatment

Gingivitis is a common gum disease characterized by inflammation of the gums. It is usually caused by poor oral hygiene, allowing plaque to accumulate along the gumline and cause irritation. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to a more severe form of gum disease called periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss and other serious complications. Here's how to identify gingivitis and determine if a patient needs gum treatment:

Signs and Symptoms of Gingivitis:

  1. Redness and Swelling: The gums may appear red, swollen, and tender to the touch. 
  2. Bleeding: Gums may bleed easily, especially during brushing, flossing, or eating hard foods.
  3. Bad Breath: Persistent bad breath or a foul taste in the mouth can be a sign of gingivitis due to the presence of bacteria in the mouth.
  4. Receding Gums: As gingivitis progresses, the gums may start to recede, exposing more of the tooth's root.
  5. Painful Chewing: Gums may feel sensitive or painful, particularly when pressure is applied.
  6. Loose Teeth: In advanced cases of gingivitis, teeth may become loose or shift position due to damage to the supporting structures of the teeth.
Ultimately, patients are encouraged to seek dentist consultation. Here at Klinik Pergigian V-Smile, our qualified dentists provide professional advices and personalized recommendations tailored to individual needs and preferences.
