My dentist said that it looks like I have gingivitis. I went for what she said was a deep cleaning today. I was confused because she didnt measure my gums and didnt numb me. And the cleaning didnt last that long. I have heard that deep cleanings last a long time and sometimes over a couple of visits. Is there something strange about this?. Also, my gums are still red. Can dentists tell just by looking if it is gingivitis or periodontitis?. I have to see her again in three weeks.
