Receding Gums And Treatment And Causes
It can be scary and painful to have receding gums, but you don’t need to worry. There are several steps you can take at home that may serve as effective treatment for receding gums, depending on the severity of the problem. The first step for addressing an oral health matter is to consult your dentist to find out whether your oral health requires further measures.
Gum recession is the process in which the gum moves away and exposes the root surface.
When gum recession occurs, the following could result:-
- The tooth is prone to sensitivity to temperature.
- The tooth would appear longer and makes your smile unappealing.
- The tooth would be prone to damage from brushing, creating a notch on the surface of the root.
With a special technique invented by Dr John Chao, which is the Pinhole Surgical Technique your gum would be improved with minimal discomfort and without the use of scalpel and sutures.
Do not ignore gum recession!
Early detection and treatment are essential to maintaining healthy gums.
If you think you have gum recession, contact Grange Dental Care to arrange for a consultation.
NOTE: Any surgical or invasive procedure causes risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second option from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
