Tissue recession is one of many warnings that you are suffering from poor gum health. Unfortunately, once this issue occurs, you can lose confidence in your smile and experience frustrating discomfort due to heightened dental sensitivity. Treatment for receding gums can improve how you look while also protecting portions of the tooth structure that depend on coverage from healthy tissues.
As your gums recede because of an infection, they expose portions of your tooth structure that are more vulnerable to problems and generally more sensitive. This can make hot and cold items difficult to enjoy, and it can make you more likely to develop new oral health issues. That change in tissues also interferes with your smile by making certain teeth look longer and uneven, and by disrupting your facial symmetry.
There are different solutions for the treatment of receding gums. Tissue grafts have been used to help patients with this issue, but there are also non-surgical alternatives that allow tissues to be manipulated into their proper positions. We can help you understand your options and what to expect from your procedure. You may be surprised at how little time is required to care for you, as well as how efficiently tissue modifications can take place.
