Early symptoms of a periodontal health problem like gingivitis can come in the form of inflamed gums that bleed easily when brushing and flossing. Gingivitis can also be accompanied by persistent bad breath.
Without professional treatment, from a professionally trained dentist like Dr. Doris Madrigal gingivitis inflammation can lead to the more severe gum disease. This might include a thorough dental cleaning followed up with general improvements in your daily oral hygiene efforts.
The severe form of gum disease, which is known as periodontitis cause your gums to recede from the base of your teeth and even lead to tooth loss. The system inflammation of periodontitis could also cause medical complications and tax your immune system.
