While brushing is helpful in keeping teeth healthy, receding gums will need more professional treatment.
I Think My Gums Are Receding
Without proper oral hygiene, the gums can begin to recede back and expose more of the enamel of the teeth. However, gum recession can occur form more than a lack of proper oral hygiene. In some cases, over-brushing can result in damaging the gums and causing the recession.
While we can help treat receding gums, the patient needs to call and schedule an appointment. Signs and symptoms of receding gums can include the appearance of longer teeth. As the gums recede, more of the teeth will be visible.
Another symptom is increased sensitivity in the teeth. If your teeth ache when consuming hot or cold substances, then you need to call us. The receding gums can expose the roots of the teeth, which can become infected. With our treatment, we can help protect the teeth and relieve symptoms.
Receding gums can also be a sign of periodontal disease or infection. The longer the symptoms persist, the worse the soreness and pain can get. If you notice any teeth are loose or seem to wiggle when in place, then call us right away.
We can help to provide treatment by removing any signs of infection, relieving symptoms, lengthening the gums, and more. During an appointment, we will consider any of these options and determine which one meets your needs. We will also provide follow-up care to help keep your teeth healthy. Call us to learn more about the signs of receding gums and how we can help provide treatment today.
