Receding Gums Treatment
Your gums are an important support system for your teeth. When they recede or show signs of irritation, it often means they need attention. There are many reasons for gum recession, but periodontal disease is the most common. The presence of tartar buildup and/or infection along the gum line can cause the gums to pull away from the tooth root. This can not only further the progression of gum disease, but it can lead to sensitive teeth and even loose teeth.
We proudly offer excellence in receding gums treatment at Carolina Commons Dentistry. After first determining the specific reason for your gum recession, our dental team will develop and implement a successful treatment plan to restore your gums back to their original, healthy condition. If your gums are receding due to gum disease, a deep cleaning can often eradicate the deep pockets of bacteria and encourage the gums to reattach to the tooth roots. When treating gum symptoms, we take a proactive approach to protect patients from the devastating effects of more advanced periodontal disease.
Bleeding and Swollen Gums Relief
If your gums are receding due to gum disease, there is a high likelihood you may also be experiencing other symptoms such as bleeding and swollen gums. These are also some of the first signs of periodontal infection, and prompt treatment is important. If you frequently notice blood after brushing your teeth or your gums seem puffier or more tender than normal, please let our dental team know so we can reverse the condition in a timely manner. Bleeding and swelling within the gums can be disruptive as well as uncomfortable. Let us give you the relief you need and deserve.
