Dental Care and Gingivitis

The Merck Manual Home Edition states:
"Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums (gingivae).
* Gingivitis results most often from inadequate brushing and flossing but may result from medical disorders or the use of certain drugs.
* The gums are red and swollen and bleed easily.
* Good oral hygiene, frequent professional cleanings, and adequate nutrition usually eliminate gingivitis, and some mouthwashes may help.

Gingivitis is an extremely common disease in which the gums become red and swollen and bleed easily. Gingivitis causes little pain in its early stages and thus may not be noticed. However, gingivitis that is left untreated may progress to periodontitis (see see Periodontitis), a more severe gum disease that can result in tooth loss."

Medications Used in Treatment:
1. Antiseptics: Periogard, Peridex (available OTC)
2. Multivitamin and Mineral Supplements: Mvc-Fluoride
