Gingivitis, usually known as gum disease, is a dental issue characterized by symptoms like constant bad breath, red or swollen gums and very sensitive, sore gums that may bleed. If left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis and become a very serious issue.
Poor oral hygiene, resulting in plaque buildup is the primary cause of gum disease. Other factors that can contribute to this problem, include:
- Hormonal changes,
- Genetic predisposition,
- Poor nutrition,
- Certain medications,
