No. Gingivitis is simply inflammation of the gums. It is the most common oral disease in humans, affecting small children and adults of all ages. It is generally reversible with good oral hygiene (brushing and flossing) and perhaps a dental cleaning at a dental office.

What is gingivitis?

Gingivitis is inflamed gums. The most common cause of gingivitis is inadequate oral hygiene. Improving one's oral hygiene through frequent effective brushing and flossing usually reduces or eliminates gingivitis. It is important to differentiate gingivitis from periodontitis. While gingivitis only involves the gums, periodontitis involves the periodontal attachment, that is the tissues that hold the tooth to the jaw bone. Loss of this attachment is most often irreversible, and this condition must be treated with the help of a dentist and dental hygienist. See your dentist for a correct diagnosis and treatment.
