What is gum disease? Why do my gums bleed? Why do I have bad breath?
These are common questions that many of our patients at Power Ranch Dental have at their first dental visit. Anybody can have some type of gum disease regardless of age or sex. It is one of the most common infectious conditions that affect the American population.
Gingivitis is the most common form of gum disease. It is the inflammation and infections of the soft tissue, or the gums, in our mouth. Gingivitis is reversible and curable. By scheduling regular visits to the dentist you will reduce the risk of developing this disease. However, it is imperative to improve oral hygiene habits at home. Brushing the oral cavity two times a day and flossing “ at least “ once, will be an effective weapon to fight gingivitis.
If there is any further question regarding Gingivitis please contact us at (480)988-2282.
