Every person’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are enthusiastic about oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t impact your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause troubles.
The first sign of gingivitis is swollen, sore gums.
Gingivitis is the term for Stage 1 gum disease. At Cornertown Dentistry, we routinely discover gingivitis in patients who are not even aware that they have the condition.
It is critical for people to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. Sore, swollen, or bleeding gums are an alert that something is not right.
