Gingivitis is a disease of the Gums.
Bleeding and inflammation of the gums is Gingivitis.
Initially it is mild.
A tiny space is present between the teeth and periodontal membrane.
This space is called pocket.
When food molecules and bacteria stick to this space, it forms plaque. Plaque (an invisible, sticky layer) is the main reason for Gingivitis.
It should be treated early, because it can lead to serious gum disease. Persistent Gingivitis results into receding gums.

I am 32 yrs old female. Since the last 3 years I am suffering from black stains on my teeth prominently on the gum line. My dentist says its chromogenic bacteria for which there is no cure. I have to undergo tooth cleaning every 3-6 months to remove the stains since they dont come out with regular brushing. I have lost hope completely. Could you please help?
