Gingivitis, alternatively known as gum inflammation, is a condition where the gums diverge from their healthy, pink color.
It’s one of the most prevalent gum diseases and results from the accumulation of bacterial plaque along the gumline.
This condition often arises when oral hygiene practices, such as flossing, are overlooked.


What are the symptoms?

Typical symptoms include bleeding during tooth brushing or flossing, redness, swelling, and tenderness of the gums, gum recession, changes in taste, and halitosis.

How is it diagnosed?

Our dentists can diagnose gingivitis based on the listed symptoms during an examination. The presence of inflamed gums can be confirmed by probing with a periodontal instrument, which may reveal deeper pockets. X-rays can also aid in identifying gum inflammation. Blood tests may be required to ascertain the severity of the infection.

Which age groups are affected?

Gingivitis can affect individuals across all age groups. There are no specific age restrictions.

How is gingivitis treated?

At Clinic EGO, we tailor the treatment plan according to the severity of the infection. In more severe cases, cleaning of the gum pockets is carried out. Antimicrobial mouthwashes, antibiotics, or oral anti-inflammatory medications may be prescribed to complement the treatment.

How long does gingivitis treatment take?

The duration varies depending on the treatment plan. A more precise timeframe can be provided by our dentist post examination.

Which department should we schedule an appointment with?

Our specialists in the field of “Periodontology” handle gum diseases.

What preventive measures can be taken at home?

Much like caring for other organs, maintaining a balanced diet is crucial for gum health. Good oral hygiene habits, including the use of mouthwash if not already incorporated, should be upheld.

What is pregnancy gingivitis, and how is it treated?

Pregnancy gingivitis occurs due to hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy, which can impact the body’s immune response leading to gum inflammation. The treatment typically mirrors that for regular gingivitis.

Does diabetes increase the risk of gingivitis?

Yes, elevated blood sugar levels can heighten the risk of inflammation. Regular dental visits can help individuals with diabetes manage this condition.

What happens if gum inflammation is left untreated?

Untreated gingivitis can lead to more severe conditions, such as halitosis, jawbone weakening, tooth loss, and potential release of bacteria into the bloodstream.
