Gingivitis

is the inflammation of the gums (gingiva) around the teeth. Gingivitis may be caused by a build up of plaque and tartar from improper cleaning of teeth, or by injury to the gums from over-vigorous brushing and/or flossing. The condition is generally reversible. Brushing teeth thoroughly, but gently, with toothpaste and flossing with dental floss are the best ways to prevent gingivitis.
