12/10/2012 The Major Causes of Gingivitis Since childhood, it has been a widely stressed habit of making sure people are brushing their teeth sufficiently as it prevents the teeth from collecting any harmful bacteria that are detrimental to the enamel and gums. Gingivitis is when this bacteria starts to eat away at the gum line, receding it from the teeth, and is mainly caused by poor oral hygiene habits such as lack of regular dental cleanings and brushing teeth, as well as usage of smoking and chewing tobacco. This allows plaque and bacteria to build up and break down the bone and connective tissue that holds the teeth in place. This makes the gums become very irritated and prone to bleeding, making it difficult to consume foods or beverages. Prolonged gingivitis can also lead to loss or shifting of teeth, which changes the way the teeth fit upon biting down.
