This is the first sign of gum disease. You may notice a tender feeling and see some redness and bleeding when you brush and floss. It is important to have your teeth cleaned before this condition continues and results in irreversible bone loss. Depending on the extent of inflammation a routine hygiene visit using our Cavitron Touch is normally able to treat and reverse this early stage of gum disease.
If the inflammation has progressed Dr. Wright may recommend the use of the Sirolaser to aid in the reduction of the bacteria that causes gingivitis. If you suspect that you have gingivitis please schedule an appointment with our skilled hygiene team. With regards to gingivitis treating this disease early reduces more invasive procedures later.
