Gingivitis: can still be an infection of the gum even though your hygiene is excellent. The other option is that at times we can be overly vigorous with the brushing. Try to set up a virtual video consult through the Discovery app and we can have a closer look

Gum disease: This is an infection that will require you to see your Dentist first for treatment or referral to a specialist Periodontist, then an overhauling of your ineffective oral hygiene program. Go now.
