Why Is Gingivitis A Big Problem?

Answer:  Gingivitis is gum disease.  

gingivitis is gum disease in an early stage
Yes, it is the beginning stage of gum disease and the damage is considered reversible. 

However, gum disease, periodontal disease, gingivitis, stage one periodontal disease, etc  - regardless of the classification, this is the SAME disease process in different stages.

Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss

= not good.

Most people are completely unaware that they have gum disease. 

That's a bummer because gum disease is bad news.   In fact, about 75% of people, as most dental professionals will say, have gum disease.

It's a problem that has plagued mankind probably since the beginning of our existence.  It causes people to lose teeth.

How Do You Know If You Have Gum Disease?

One of the best and more objective ways you can tell is according to your periodontal pocket depths.
Generally speaking, most dental professionals will say that your gums are healthy if you are at 3mm and below everywhere.

Conversely, most will say your gums are unhealthy when those numbers get above 3mm. 

This is really the best objective guage you have.  It sure beats relying on someone to say that it looks good or bad. 

What Do You Do About It?

This will be the most direct and simplest answer you will hear on this topic.  Most people waste a lot of time and words beating around the bush.

You simply adjust what you do at home until your pocket depths are back to 3mm and below.  Everywhere.  Period.

Most people can achieve this with work and persistence.  The amount of both will vary depending on each person's individual factors.  

One of the top tools that I think you should consider and that I think every family should have is the Hydro Floss.  You can read more about it here.
