You May Have Gingivitis

Affordable Maple Grove Dentistry

This post from Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove MN is about gingivitis, which is early-stage gum disease.

Gum disease is usually the result of poor brushing and flossing habits. When you don’t brush and floss on a regular basis there is a build-up of plaque, which hardens into a substance called tartar. That’s why we recommend brushing and flossing twice a day. It’s the best way to prevent plaque from building up.

Advanced gum disease develops when gingivitis is not treated. Toxins build up in the plaque on your teeth and invade gum tissue. Not only that, it gets into the bone and ligaments that support the teeth. The teeth can actually become loose.

The good news is that gum disease is treatable.
