Every Burnet area dentistry patient’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are diligent about oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t affect your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause problems.
Gingivitis is the term for the mild gum disease. At Ritchie Dental Group, we routinely discover gingivitis in our family dentistry clients who are not even aware they have the condition.
The first signs of gingivitis are swollen, sore gums.
It is important for our Horseshoe Bay and Burnet area dental patients to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. If you haven’t had an oral examination in a while, call Ritchie Dental Group at 830-693-8833. Dr. Greg Ritchie thoroughly examine teeth and gums and take time to discuss the results and recommendations with each general dentistry patient.
