Gum Recession Treatment

Miami Gum Recession Treatment

Skilled Treatment for Receding Gums

Many people aren't aware that they are suffering from a very common dental issue, gum recession. The warning signs don't usually appear suddenly; rather, it is often the first sign of sensitivity in your teeth or an appearance of longer-looking teeth which may alert you to this problem. If closely examined, many times patients can feel indentations near their gums—an indication that necessary intervention should be sought out for full treatment and prevention!

The skilled Miami dentists at Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics offer treatment for gum recession and more serious conditions like periodontal disease.

What is Gum Recession?

Gum recession causes the protective gum tissue around teeth to gradually wear away, making it easier for disease-causing bacteria to settle in. If not treated properly and quickly, these pockets can be detrimental to both supporting tissues and bone structures of the teeth eventually leading up to tooth loss!

What Causes Receding Gums?

Many potential causes of receding gums affect patients and require attention. From changes in oral hygiene to certain health conditions, these factors can cause gum recession:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Genetics
  • Aggressive tooth brushing
  • Poor dental care
  • Hormones
  • Cigarettes and other tobacco products
  • Tooth grinding or clenching
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Lip or tongue piercing

How is Gum Recession Treated?

Dental deep cleaning offers an effective solution for mild gum recession. During the scaling and root planing process, your dentist will remove plaque and tartar from below the gums which can give bacteria fewer places to hide. Antibiotics may also be prescribed in order to eliminate any remaining harmful microbes present at the treatment site.

If your gum recession has caused deep pockets and extensive bone loss, surgery may be the necessary recourse to repair any damage.
