Gingivitis is a Precursor to Periodontal Disease
Also known as gum disease. Usually a result of poor hygiene, gingivitis is a chronic inflammation of the gingival tissue. Early detection by your dentist or dental hygienist can help treat the condition before it evolves into periodontitis or even reverse the inflammatory process altogether. Once gingivitis has progressed into periodontal disease, it is irreversible without surgery and can lead to tooth and bone loss. Periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss seen in patients today. There is also a significant correlation between diabetes, strokes, heart attacks and gum disease.
