Gingivitis Fort Mill, SC
6 person family with children, their parents and grandparents

Despite advances in dentistry, Gingivitis is a common periodontal disease that affects millions of Americans each year. Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums surrounding the teeth, and when not corrected it can lead to serious oral health issues. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we are dedicated to our patients’ oral health. We can help those who have gingivitis find successful treatment options, and with our dedication to providing comprehensive family dental care we can also help patients prevent this gum disease before it starts.

Bacteria are a natural development in the human mouth. While that may sound gross, these bacteria help to break down food particles left behind after eating. However, when these bacteria are not cleaned out on a regular basis they can be very harmful to the mouth. The mouth is an ideal place for bacteria to thrive – it’s a moist and warm environment, and with a constant food supply, bacteria can rapidly reproduce. When bacteria are not removed by daily flossing and brushing and through regular dental cleanings, the bacteria can reproduce at an overwhelming rate and break down the body’s defense system.

Gingivitis begins when the bacteria in the mouth form harmful plaque on the teeth. This plaque eats away at the tooth enamel and damages the structure of the tooth and its surrounding gum tissue. The severity of this infection can cause an entire mouth to become infected if not properly treated.

At Gold Hill Dentistry, Dr. Sagunarthy and Dr. Mokris are here to provide our patients with the support that they need to promote a healthy mouth. If you are suffering from gingivitis or are simply in the market for a comprehensive dental practice, call our office today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to partnering with you on the road to a beautiful and healthy mouth.
