    hello,causes include gingivitis(inflammation of the gum),drugs,new flossing routine,new hard toothbrush,pregnancy,build up of plaque in the gum line.Visit the dentist at least once every 6 months for plaque removal. Follow your dentist's home care instructions.Brush your teeth gently with a soft-bristle toothbrush at least twice a day. It is best if you can brush after every meal. Also, flossing teeth twice a day can prevent plaque from building up.
