How do I know if I have bad gums?

Gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease, an infection of the tissues around your teeth caused by plaque.

If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed easily. You may also experience bad breath.

Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
