Inflammation of the gums

Inflammation of the gum or Gingivitis is a form of periodontal disease and untreated it can advance to periodontitis disease. Bleeding gums after brushing, red and swollen gums are symptoms of gingivitis infection. It’s advisable to visit our dental care clinic in Nairobi for treatment to prevent advancement to the more serious periodontitis that can cause loss of teeth. In mild cases patients may not notice, that is why at Smartsmile dental clinic we offer regular dental care services for our client. This gives room for prevention and early detection of any dental disease-causing bacteria. 

Accumulation of sticky bacteria deposit (plaque) on and around teeth can cause gingivitis. The bacterial deposit activates immune response which can destroy gum tissues. 

Dental plaque forms naturally on the surface of the tooth. This can cause tooth decay. When plaque is not removed it hardens into calculus, or tartar with yellow coloring forming at the base of the teeth near the gum.
