This condition causes red, swollen and tender gums that are more likely to bleed. If you already have gingivitis, it can worsen during pregnancy, and can even lead to periodontitis, better known as gum disease.

According to the findings published in the June 2014 issue of Antiquity, the iron pin may have been inserted during her life to replace a lost tooth.

Foods to choose for healthy teeth
Orangeville Banner
Even though we live in an area of antibacterial mouthwash, total-care toothpastes and forty different types of dental floss, it wasn't all that long ago that our oral health was largely determined by genetics and the foods we ate. But even though the range of dental care products continues to expand exponentially and your dentist is just a phone call away, what you choose to eat can still have a positive — or negative — impact on your oral health.

It has long been the gold standard for increasing attached gingiva around the natural dentition. Connective tissue grafting provides many of the same benefits along with root coverage, without the accompanying discomfort from the donor site, making the FGG less desirable.

Five simple secrets to improving dental patient reviews
DentistryIQ
