Gingivitis is a gum Imflammation by the plaque´s and tartar bacteria that get traped on the teeth´s base. It produces swelling and bleeding. The consequences could be redness, swelling and could bleed during brushing or on its own. Sometimes could lead to bad breath and taste.
This condition is totally reversible if taken on time. If not, could develo ponto a Periodontitis.

Periodontitis // Phiorrea
