Gingival health


Plaque-induced gingivitis affects a significant portion of the population. You probably spend a lot of your time educating patients about this condition. Since gingivitis may cause little or no discomfort in its early stages, some people might not even realize they have it. Of course, the good news for any patient is that gingivitis is reversible.

Reduce gum inflammation


Naturally, the speed at which gingivitis can be reversed depends a great deal on someone’s oral hygiene. Patients rely on dental professionals to assist them in identifying areas of infection and methods to assure optimal oral health. Regular dental visits combined with individualized oral health regimens maximize prevention of periodontal infections.

Better oral care for gingivitis

For patients who already have tender gums, a sonic toothbrush is a powerful yet gentle way to get a deep clean. The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush has a Sensitive mode that provides a gentle yet thorough clean. And for patients reluctant to floss, the Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro is a proven way to gently and easily remove interproximal plaque biofilm.
