Gingivitis is a disease characterized by plaque on the teeth and sensitive or bleeding gums. In its early stages, gingivitis is easily reversible; however, when it progresses and becomes periodontitis - the pulling away of the teeth from the gums - it becomes costly to treat. Before gingivitis sets in, try some natural defenses and dietary measures to keep it at bay.

Gingivitis is one of the stages of gum disease. When plaque is allowed to buildup on the teeth, the surrounding gums become inflamed thus causing gingivitis. Early gingivitis treatment helps to prevent periodontal disease.
