Receding Gum Treatment

Receding gums are very common amongst dental patients. While it may be common, it is not a sign of a healthy mouth. At Bear Valley Dental Care, we provide receding gum treatment, as a part of our general dental care, that can prevent further gum recession and help to reverse the recession that has already occurred.

Receding gums are a serious oral health issue that can lead to severe consequences for your teeth and entire mouth. The gum tissues help to securely hold your teeth in place and protect the roots of your teeth. Each tooth is a living feature. When it is damaged at the root, it can lose its life. Exposed tooth roots are highly sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, and they are extremely susceptible to bacterial infection.

Gingivitis and severe gum disease are common causes of receding gums. Bacteria-laden plaque forms at the gum line of your teeth every day. If this plaque is not removed with daily flossing and brushing, it will linger and damage the gum tissues. Another common cause of receding gums is brushing too hard. If you apply too much pressure while brushing, you can cause the gums to pull away from your teeth. The experts at Bear Valley Dental Care can help determine the cause of your receding gums and provide the appropriate treatment necessary to restore your smile.

The good news is that bleeding or swollen gums can often be treated and reversed when these symptoms are caught early. By providing thorough cleanings, our excellent dental team can remove damaging tartar buildup and treat any infection that is irritating your gums.
