What is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is the inflammation of gum tissue around your teeth. It is a result of our own body's natural immune response to destroy harmful bacterial infections in the gum lines surrounding the teeth. These areas collect with plaque biofilm and can easily lead to detached gum tissue, bone and tooth loss.

Symptoms of Gingivitis may include:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Itchy gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Tenderness

Gingivitis is silent and sneaks up on us easily. However, it can cause troubles for years and then one day we realize that our gum health has become so severe that we are losing our teeth. This severe gum infection is called Periodontal Disease.

Thankfully, gingivitis is preventable AND reversible! The key is reaching these bacteria and removing them on a daily basis. Conventional oral hygiene methods do not always do this. If it did, more than 90% of the adult population wouldn't have gingivitis. Yes, it's that common.

Studies show that Oral Irrigation not only cleans these problem areas, it's actually more efficient than conventional methods!

By using an Oral Breeze oral irrigator you can simply flush out the loose food and biofilm particles from under the gums and between the teeth. As a result the gums will be clean, the body's immune system will stop working in overdrive, and you'll have healthy, pink gums without the swelling and bleeding. With Oral Breeze, you can keep your smile healthy for years to come. See more on Gingivitis.
