How can I tell if I have gingivitis?

Gingivitis can produce swollen and tender gums that bleed easily, especially when brushing.  Another symptom is if your gums appear to be receding and your teeth appear elongated in their appearance.

If left untreated the gum disease can create pockets that form between the teeth and gums.  These pockets become filled with old food particles and plaque, which results in recurring bad breath and a bad taste in their mouth.
