Causes and treatment of gingivitis
Signs of gingivitis include red and puffy gums, that bleed easily when the person brushes their teeth.
Gingivitis often resolves with good oral hygiene, such as longer and more frequent brushing, and flossing. In addition, an antiseptic mouthwash may help.
In mild cases of gingivitis, patients may not even know they have it, because symptoms are mild. However, the condition should be taken seriously and addressed immediately.
