How Do You Stop Receding Gums?
Gum recession is a common dental problem many people develop, and if caught early, your dentist can help you prevent further problems. Newman Family Dental offers periodontal treatments that can repair these problems.Why is it Important to Treat Receding Gums
One problem that develops from receding gums is the small gaps that form underneath your teeth, which allows bacteria to grow underneath, damaging teeth at the roots. This can result in tooth loss.
Should you ignore this, your gums will continue to recede making the problem grow worse.Cause of Gum Recession
There are many reasons a person's gums might recede. The most common is due to an periodontal disease, genes or aggressive tooth brushing.Treatment for Gum Recession
The only way to treat this problem is by going to your dentist.
A dentist will start by cleaning the gaps formed from the damage that has already occurred, deep cleaning the gums and these gaps, to stop the bacteria from eating away at the roots of your teeth.
The next step the dentist may take could include gum pocket depth reduction, gum regeneration or a soft tissue graft. These procedures will fix your current gum recession problem and will help prevent it from occurring again.
