Back bteeth: Generally the back teeth and the inside of the lower front teeth are affected the most. The reason is these are the hardest areas to clean and thus build up the most plaque, which in turn causes is responsible for the gingivitis developing.The same applies to the insides of the lower front teeth, and also the proximity in this area to the salivary glands. Brush and floss these areas well.
