Gingivitis

Everybody has a collection of germs in their mouth that form plaque. If plaque is not removed efficiently from all tooth surfaces it causes the gums to become inflamed, which can lead to redness, swelling, bleeding, pain and bad breath.

Luckily gingivitis is reversible with efficient home care and professional cleaning.

If not treated, in susceptible people, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis.

Your mouth is directly related to the body by the bloodstream.  Studies have shown that oral inflammation may be linked to problems in other parts of the body. Some of these problems are heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and periodontal disease.

At our practice, Dr’s Goldman and Bloom have the specialist training and experience to help treat your condition and return you to a healthy mouth.

Following a comprehensive examination and consultation, a tailor made treatment plan will be presented to you.

The subsequent visits will then be aimed at correcting the problem with an added emphasis on prevention so that it does not recur.
