Address Underlying Causes of Receding Gums

Gum disease is one of the most common causes of gum recession. Our dentists treat gum disease with a procedure called scaling and root planing that removes bacteria from tough-to-clean areas of your mouth and makes it harder for more bacteria to accumulate. To prevent gum disease in the first place, it’s important to brush and floss every day and see us every six months for professional dental cleanings.

In addition, our team can help you with other common issues that can cause recession, such as:

  • Misaligned Teeth – Teeth that aren’t properly aligned can cause many problems, including gum damage. We can correct bite problems with Invisalign.
  • Vigorous Brushing – Brushing too hard is tough on your gums and your tooth enamel too. Our team will work with you to improve your brushing technique and suggest products that are easier on your mouth.
  • Poorly Fitting Restorations – Dentures can cause recession by rubbing against gums. We can correct the fit of dentures.
  • Teeth Grinding – Bruxism (teeth grinding) creates force that damages your gums and teeth. We can fit you for a custom-made mouthguard that will stop this destructive habit.

Our dentists can also cover exposed tooth roots with a tooth bonding treatment. For more serious cases of gum recession, we can refer you to a periodontist for a gum graft or other advanced treatment.

Common Questions About Gum Recession Treatment

What is gum recession?

Gum recession is when your gums are receding, leaving more of your tooth and roots exposed and vulnerable. This occurs most often as the result of gum disease. If caught early enough, we can treat the problem and reverse much of the damage. Our procedures remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar from below the gumline, where a toothbrush won’t reach. Then we smooth the roots so that bacteria won’t be able to gather there again.

Is gum recession treatment painful?

No, it isn’t. We now have gentle techniques, including laser therapy, for helping patients whose teeth seem longer than before or that expose the roots. This unseemly condition can result from gum disease, poorly fitting restorations, vigorous toothbrushing techniques, and so forth. One way or another, we’ll help get your gums back on track so that you can smile big again!
