What is gum recession, and what can I do about it?

Home » Gum Recession

If you take good care of your smile, you will be rewarded with healthy teeth and gums. However, if you are not participating in effectively cleaning and caring for your smile, you may be putting yourself at risk of developing problems such as periodontal disease. In addition to causing infections in the mouth, periodontal disease can also cause gum recession. East Brunswick, New Jersey, area patients who want to stop receding gums and restore their smile’s health and wellness will want to work with the team at Modern Dental Studio to undergo unique procedures designed to address this problem.

What is gum recession?

Our dentists at Modern Dental Studio describe gum recession as a condition in which the margin of the gum tissue around the teeth starts to recede or pull away from the tooth. Gum recession exposes more of the tooth, making it prone to decay and damage due to plaque buildup. If not addressed, this can cause significant oral health issues, such as tooth sensitivity and even tooth loss.

What can be done to stop receding gums?

The good news is that treatments are available for gum recession, including scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), from our dental professionals at Modern Dental Studio. This treatment removes tartar buildup below the gum line and helps reduce inflammation, allowing your gums to heal. In addition, Dr. Tripthi Shetty may use grafts of healthy tissue to cover exposed roots, but only if necessary.
