What is gingivitis treatment?

The mildest and most common form of gum disease, gingivitis, may cause inflammation and irritation of your gums. Most frequently caused by a buildup of plaque, gingivitis is easily treatable if it's found soon enough. Some indications of gingivitis are odorous breath, swollen or red gums, pain around the gums, and bleeding when brushing or flossing. If left undiagnosed, gingivitis may lead to more serious phases of gum disease. If you think that you may have gingivitis or a more severe case of gum disease, then contact Madison Avenue Dentists in New York, NY to schedule a dental exam. Our intention is to restore your dental health and protect your smile.

How do I know if I need gingivitis treatment?

Issues that accompany gingivitis are normally because of plaque buildup caused by poor dental hygiene. The buildup creates a bacterial film that covers the teeth and generally causes a yellow discoloration. If the plaque is not addressed, the gum disease can escalate into periodontitis or advanced periodontitis. Ideal candidates for the treatment of gingivitis are individuals who are experiencing tender or swollen gums, bleeding gums, discomfort while chewing, bad breath, or an infection in the gums. If you believe you are suffering from any of these symptoms and need treatment, contact our team at Madison Avenue Dentists in New York, NY today to set up an appointment so that we can help.

Can gingivitis be prevented?

Preventing gingivitis primarily involves maintaining good oral hygiene habits. Regular brushing and flossing are crucial in removing plaque, the main cause of gingivitis. Additionally, routine dental check-ups and cleanings help keep your gums healthy and catch any early signs of gum disease before they worsen. A healthy diet and avoiding tobacco products can also play a significant role in prevention.

What factors increase the risk of developing gingivitis?

Several factors can increase the risk of gingivitis, including poor oral hygiene, smoking or chewing tobacco, and certain medical conditions such as diabetes. Hormonal changes, such as those occurring during pregnancy, menstruation, or menopause, can also make gums more sensitive and prone to inflammation. Understanding these risk factors can help in taking proactive measures to protect your gum health.

When should I see a dentist for gingivitis?

It's essential to see a dentist if you notice any signs of gingivitis, such as persistent bad breath, swollen or bleeding gums, or gum tenderness. Early intervention can prevent the condition from progressing to periodontitis, a more serious form of gum disease. Regular dental visits are also recommended to ensure your gums and teeth remain healthy.
