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.

4.4 / 5.0

Based on 97 reviews


"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
