What is gingivitis?

Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease. If you are suffering from gingivitis, you might notice that your gums appear red or swollen, and they might also feel irritated. If you have bad breath that doesn't go away with brushing, flossing, or a mouth rinse, this may also be a sign that you have gingivitis.

Gum disease is an infection of the gums and bones that support your teeth. Even though gingivitis is the beginning of this infection, when it is detected early, you may be able to stop the infection from progressing and even reverse it in some cases.

Having an excellent home care routine that includes brushing your teeth twice and flossing once a day using the proper techniques is the first step to controlling gingivitis. Visiting your Fairfax, VA dentist every six months for teeth cleanings and checkups is another way to protect yourself from the damage that gum disease can cause.

The earlier gum disease can be treated, the better your chances are to successfully control your condition. Dr. Faifax and her team are well-equipped to help you manage gum disease whether you are dealing with gingivitis, or advanced gum disease, which is known as periodontitis.
