Gingivitis, a common form of gum disease, is a condition whereby gums become red, swollen and bleed easily. This condition can be reversed by daily removal of plaque and regular professional cleaning. If left untreated, this can lead to periodontitis and eventual tooth loss. With periodontitis, a pocket forms around the teeth and the gums separate from them, the tissue that anchors the teeth becomes inflamed and a slight amount of bone loss occurs.
