What are Gum Disease Treatments?
The most common gum diseases are gingivitis and periodontitis. Both types are harmful to gum tissues, teeth, roots, the jawbone, and other mouth tissues. Symptoms can include reduced gum lines, gum tenderness, plaque buildup, and increased space between teeth. When untreated, gum disease leads to tooth decay and loss.
The best way to prevent gum disease is through regular cleanings. If you’re already suffering from these symptoms, don’t worry. There are a range of treatment options available!
Gum grafting is a procedure commonly used to stop the progression of gum recession and help prevent tooth decay and loss. A receding gum line is something that happens very gradually over time. If your teeth appear longer, or you’ve developed a sensitivity to hot or cold food and drink, your gums may be receding, exposing your tooth’s root.
Some of the causes of Gum Recession:
- Genetic history
- Diabetes & other illnesses
- Hormonal changes
- Teeth grinding & clenching
- Tongue & lip piercings
- Poor oral hygiene
- Improper Brushing
