If you’ve been experiencing tender, swollen, or bleeding gums, you may have gingivitis, or early-stage gum disease. When caught at this stage, gum disease is generally reversible with excellent oral hygiene at home and professional cleanings. To learn more about gingivitis, watch this informative video from the American Dental Association.

Gingivitis does not always exhibit symptoms, which is one reason it’s important to visit Silver Leaf Dentistry every six months for a cleaning and examination. To book an appointment, fill out our online form or call 720-504-2539.
