Gingivitis is an accumulation of plaque in the teeth. This plaque is caused by bacteria in the mouth that are not removed properly. Most plaques can be removed by brushing and flossing, along with regular professional cleaning of the teeth. For some people, additional supplements may be needed to remove the plaque that causes the bacteria.
Desquamative gingivitis is a bit more serious. This form of gingivitis causes the outer gingival layer to detach from the underlying tissue. It can be painful because it exposes nerve endings. The gums become red and inflamed, often with white spots. If you have gingivitis, the outer layer of the gum may rub very easily. This condition is more common in postmenopausal women. Therefore, it’s very important that women over 40 remain attentive and pay special attention to their oral hygiene.
Fortunately, the treatment of desquamative gingivitis is the same as with regular gingivitis. The elimination of bacteria in the mouth is the key; therefore, oral hygiene is the first step. It’s important that you brush your teeth and floss daily and consult your dentist for regular routine cleaning.
