Gingivitis and Early Gum Disease
Gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease. It is caused by a buildup of bacteria and plaque in the mouth due to poor dental hygiene and can make your gums red, swollen, and prone to bleeding. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to a more serious gum disease called periodontitis, which damages your gums and can lead to tooth loss.
