hen we speak of inflamed, swollen and bleeding gums technically we speak of gingivitis.
Gingivitis is the first sign of ailment of our gums.
The main cause of this acute disease (because this is what it is) is the bacterial plaque, in fact the bacteria that make up the dental plaque tend to lead to a bacterial infection that affects the gums, which consequently will start to be swollen, sensitive, bleeding sometimes regress and pain is felt when chewing, talking or drinking.
