Arden patients ask about effective gingivitis treatment
Patients in and around the Arden area who are experiencing the signs and symptoms of gingivitis are encouraged to visit Dr. Christopher Port of Asheville Smile Center as soon as possible for an appropriate diagnosis of the problem and the development of a treatment plan.
Gingivitis is the earliest stage of periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). It can be reversed if caught early enough by patients, which requires them to be well aware of what to look for. Some common signs of gingivitis include:
- Bad breath that cannot be controlled
- Bleeding when brushing and flossing
- Inflammation of the gums
Patients who notice these concerns are encouraged to call Dr. Christopher Port to schedule an appointment. This may include a physical exam and x-rays to determine the cause of the problem. In most cases, gingivitis treatment will include a simple cleaning. Gingivitis can be caused by infection from bacteria, plaque, and tartar development. By removing these from the surfaces of the teeth and gums, patients can easily restore their oral health.
Dr. Christopher Port and his team do not pass judgment on patients who visit their practice in seek of dental health services.
