What is Periodontal Disease?

Gingivitis is the early stages of periodontal disease. If you have gingivitis, you may not experience any pain but there are other symptoms you might notice. Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth, slightly puffy gums, and bad breath can all be signs that you have gingivitis. Often, brushing and flossing coupled with regular dental visits are enough to stave off gingivitis.
