Every person’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are passionate about oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t affect your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause problems. Call us at Southern York Smile Care in Shrewsbury PA if you suspect a problem.
The first sign of gingivitis is swollen, sore gums.
Gingivitis is the term for Stage 1 gum disease. At Southern York Smile Care, we routinely discover gingivitis in patients who are not even aware that they have the condition.
It is important to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. Sore, swollen, or bleeding gums are a signal that something is not right.
