Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums which include bleeding and swelling. It is caused by a build up of dental plaque because of inadequate tooth cleaning, especially near the gum margin. The gums become red or bleed on brushing. There is usually no discomfort. It is reversible if there is professional treatment and good home care carried out.
