What is Gum Disease?

Herro Blog l

Gum disease is considered to be the swelling of gum tissue caused by plaque. There are three stages of gum disease: gingivitis, periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis. When you have gingivitis, you may experience tender, slightly bleeding gums. This stage is considered a mild form of periodontitis, but can be reversed with a cleaning at your dental office.
