FORMS OF GINGIVITIS
There are three forms of gingivitis. Each of them determines the choice of a particular treatment strategy. Consider these forms in detail.
CHRONIC CATARRHAL GINGIVITIS
The treatment begins with a professional dental cleaning. The doctor removes plaque, smoothes the tooth surface with the help of ultrasound or blasting equipment. After this, the patient needs to learn the rules of proper oral hygiene. This is appropriate advice.
