PUBERTAD

Gingivitis associated with increased levels of the hormone estradiol appears at this stage, around the age of 12.

The clearest sign is the reddening and bleeding of the gums in response to any stimulus because there is inflammation.

This condition is usually transitory but it is advisable to have a periodontist follow up the health to prevent the disease from becoming chronic. This process is reversible and with good care and follow-up, full health will be restored.

The main form of treatment is the elimination of the bacteria that cause gingivitis. This requires good brushing and the use of dental floss or interproximal brushes. As a preventive measure, periodic check-ups during puberty are advised to monitor health and make an early diagnosis.
