Gingivitis vs Periodontitis

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums caused by an accumulation of plaque and tartar.


  • Bad breath
  • Bleeding gums after brushing teeth
  • Red, inflamed gums that are sensitive to the touch


  • Deficient immune system that can result from a malfunctioning thyroid gland, diabetes, pregnancy or leukemia.
  • Hereditary factors.
  • Bad habits, such as biting your nails, clenching or grinding your teeth, smoking, consuming too much sugar or eating poorly.
  • Taking certain medications, including hormonal contraceptives and drugs.

It is important to treat gingivitis quickly before it turns into periodontitis because the bone that supports the teeth can deteriorate, putting them at risk.

Pregnancy gingivitis is usually only temporary, caused by hormonal changes. Everything will return to normal after you give birth.
