Gum Recession in Arizona

Grey divider | SC Dental Group

What Creates Gum Recession?

Gum recession is one of the noticeable signs of gum disease. Gum recession is created when the bacteria that cause gum disease infect the gum tissue surrounding your teeth. This tissue erodes, lengthening the appearance of your teeth. As a result, your teeth can become sensitive and the protective barrier provided by your gums is eliminated, exposing more of your tooth surface to the harmful effects of dental plaque and bacteria. Gum recession occurs in moderate to severe periodontal disease so early intervention is key.

In the initial stages of periodontal disease, you may experience swollen or bleeding gums. Treatment of your gingivitis by Phoenix dentist Dr. Steven Chang, can prevent the infection from progressing to the point of receding gums.

Gum Recession Prevention

• A proper brushing and flossing routine is the best prevention of gum recession, along with regular dental cleanings and checkups.

• For some patients, tooth position may be a contributing factor. If you have crooked, crowded teeth, it may be more difficult to reach the entire exposed surface of the tooth. This allows the plaque to build on your teeth, trapping the bacteria that cause gum disease. Orthodontics can help reposition the teeth to afford full access for improved cleaning and therefore prevention of gum disease.

• If you smoke, smoking is detrimental to a healthy oral environment.

• When you first experience any of the symptoms of gum disease, such as bleeding gums, treatment should be sought immediately. Periodontal disease is easily reversed in its initial stages.

Gum Recession Treatment

Once you have receding gums, there are options available to restore their appearance and function. First, Dr. Chang would recommend a bleeding gums treatment, such as deep cleaning or laser gum surgery to prepare the oral environment. Our Phoenix dentist performs several procedures to correct gum recession, including grafting gum tissue over the exposed tooth, regenerating new tissue, or reducing pocket depth surrounding the tooth.
