Am I at Risk of Gingivitis?
Some people are more likely to develop gingivitis than others. While gingivitis is common, there are certain risk factors that make you more likely to develop the condition, such as:
- Smoking or using tobacco products
- Poor-fitting restorations
- Teeth grinding
- Certain medications
- Poor oral hygiene
- Compromised immune system
Additionally, pregnant women often experience gum inflammation and irritation due to hormonal changes.
