Gingivitis is the beginning stage of gum disease. Caught early on, it is relatively simple to treat and may be reversible with regular dental cleanings and good oral hygiene habits at home. But if it progresses to periodontitis, or severe gum disease, you risk tooth loss and serious systemic health problems.
