Gingivitis is a non-destructive periodontal disease. The most common form of gingivitis, and the most common form of periodontal disease overall, is in response to bacterial biofilms adherent to tooth surfaces, termed plaque-induced gingivitis. In the absence of treatment, gingivitis may progress to periodontitis, which is a destructive form of periodontal disease.The most common form of gingivitis and periodontal disease occurs in response to bacterial biofilms adherent to tooth surfaces, and is thus termed plaque-induced gingivitis. Gingivitis, is reversible with good oral hygiene. However in the absence of treatment, or if not controlled, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis- where the inflammation results in tissue destruction and alveolar bone resorption, which can ultimately lead to tooth loss While in some sites or individuals gingivitis never progresses to periodontitis, data indicates that periodontitis is always preceded by gingivitis.
