What Is Gum Disease?

There are three basic states anyone’s gum tissues can be in, technically they are: healthy, gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis and periodontitis are types of gum disease classified by their severity and potential to return to the ‘healthy’ state. Gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis) is a bacterial infection of the gum tissues.

Gingivitis is noticed first by some bleeding when brushing and/or flossing. The gums may feel a bit swollen and tender when cleaning. The damage is reversible through thorough cleaning.
