Gingivitis Q & A:

How do I know if I have gingivitis?

Your dentist at Missoula Dental can diagnose gingivitis at your bi-annual teeth cleaning and dental exam. Gingivitis can also cause symptoms that may warrant a trip to the dentist. Some of the most common gingivitis symptoms include:

  • Swollen gums

  • Redness

  • Tooth sensitivity

  • Bleeding gums

  • Tender gums

Unlike periodontitis, your teeth are still firmly intact if you have gingivitis. The sooner you seek treatment, the better your outcome will be in most cases.

To learn more about gingivitis, call Missoula Dental or schedule an appointment online now.
