Do All Receding Gums Require Treatment?


Posted on 8/10/2019 by David Mugford
Do All Receding Gums Require Treatment?If you are experiencing receding gums, then it is important that you think about the treatment that may be available for you. When you want to have the best possible dental health, then using the right treatment plans and keeping up with your hygiene is very important.

Here is more information regarding treatment plans that sometimes our professionals recommend when receding gums are an issue.

Treatment Plans for Receding Gums

The best way to get more from the dental care that you have and to stop the recession of gums is to make sure you brush and floss regularly. This is very important, as receding gums usually happen because of poor dental hygiene or inconsistent dental hygiene practices.

Deep cleaning treatments known as scaling and root planing are used to help bring blood flow and health to the gums, plus reduce the chances of having them recede. The gums are healthier overall once we do this procedure.

There is also something known as deep pocket surgery. This is a procedure that you can speak with our professionals about if it is something that you have questions regarding. It allows us to reduce the pockets between the gums and teeth, restoring some of the health of your gums.

There is not any one treatment plan that can truly change the way the receding gums are on their own. They can be improved on, but the gums will not grow back or come back on the teeth without a graft once they have receded. This is something important to think about.

If you are experiencing receding gums, speak with us today to learn more. You can schedule an appointment to speak with our professionals to find out the best treatment plan for you and the smile you want to have.
