Gingivitis is caused by poor oral health. If you’re not brushing and flossing enough, it can lead to gingivitis. Plaque-causing bacteria can build up and harm our teeth, gums, and jaw and lead to problems like gingivitis.
The meeting point of your gums and teeth and between the teeth are the most common spawning points for gingivitis.
This doesn’t always come from a lack of care for oral health. A lot of people brush and floss every day, but still develop gingivitis. This can happen because the brushing and flossing might not be thorough enough. If you’re only brushing your teeth and not moving the bristles all the way onto your gums, you could still be at risk of developing early gingivitis symptoms.
