Gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease. It usually results in redness, swelling, and bleeding of the gum tissue, particularly when you brush or floss your teeth, or bite into something hard like an apple. While gingivitis is fairly common, if left untreated, it can progress to a more severe form of gum disease.

Gingivitis is treatable and reversible in its early stages, so it is important to treat it before it develops into other problems. Good brushing and flossing habits are especially important.
