Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) is the early stage of periodontal disease. It is caused by plaque, sticky deposits of bacteria, mucus, and food particles that adhere to the teeth. The plaque causes gums to become infected and swollen. When this happens, the gums become red, shiny, and bleed easily. In some cases, there is pain but gingivitis can also be painless.
Gingivitis affects 75% of Americans over the age of 35 and is responsible for 70% of adult tooth loss.
