Gingivitis is a clinical diagnosis. This means that the physician or dentist can arrive at the diagnosis by listening to the person's medical and dental history and performing an oral exam. Blood work, X-rays, and tissue samples may be checked for those not responding to initial therapy. The person should, however, be evaluated for underlying disease.
