You May Have Gingivitis

Affordable Seattle DentistryIn this article from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle we talk about gingivitis, which is early-stage gum disease.

Everyone’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are committed to oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t influence your health. But if your gums aren’t healthy, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause problems.

The first sign of gingivitis is swollen, sore gums.

Gingivitis is the term for Stage 1 gum disease. Symptoms are few to none, and we routinely discover gingivitis in patients who are not even aware that they have the condition.

It is important to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when you brush and floss. Sore, swollen, or bleeding gums are an alert that something is wrong.

Daily brushing and regular checkups at Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle are the keys to preventing gum disease. Patients from Bellevue, Kirkland, and Redmond trust us with their dental health. We offer comprehensive general dentistry services. Call for an appointment today!
