You May Have Gingivitis
Every person’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are dedicated to oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t influence your health. But a word of caution from your dentist in Las Vegas: if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause problems. Regular check ups are essential!
The first sign of gingivitis is swollen, sore gums.
Gingivitis is the term for Stage 1 gum disease. At Summer Dental, we routinely discover gingivitis in patients who are not even aware that they have the condition.
It is vital for people to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. Sore, swollen, or bleeding gums are an indication that something is out of order.
If you haven’t had an oral examination in a while, call us at Summer Dental in Las Vegas. We provide thorough cleanings and checkups, along with general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
