Gingivitis, or bleeding gums, is the first stage of gum disease, which left untreated, may develop into periodontitis.

However, gum disease can be reversed if it’s detected in its early stages by:

  • Using Colgate Total* toothpaste to help prevent gingivitis
  • Brushing and flossing properly with Colgate Total* products
  • Scheduling regular checkups with your dentist

Colgate Total* toothpaste will help keep your mouth healthy and may have a positive effect on your overall health.
