Are your gums swollen?
from Deccan Herald
Gingivitis is the inflammation or swelling of gums around the teeth caused by bacteria found in dental plaque. Healthy gums are firmly attached to the teeth and the underlying bone. Healthy gums are pale pink, brown or grey in color or mottled. Those with gingivitis will show inflamed, red and swollen gums. The gums will bleed easily and be tender. Mild gingivitis causes little or no pain and you might not even notice it. But if left unchecked, it can become severe. In some people, gingivitis develops into periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss.
