Far too many people with receding gums simply “live with” their condition. What they might not realize is that gum recession can be a sign of a bigger problem in their mouths.
If you are one of the numerous men or women who have experienced gum recession and its inherent signs, such as loose teeth or sensitive teeth, in Denver, NC or the surrounding area, a call to Dr. Monte McCourt is in order.
Dr. McCourt can help you determine which solutions fit your particular needs. An appointment is necessary, however, because gum recession can be caused by a variety of issues, including:
- Poor or irregular oral hygiene
- Gum disease that has not been addressed
- Improper brushing techniques (aggressive brushing or using the wrong type of toothbrush)
- A genetic predisposition toward receding gums or gum disease
- Mouth jewelry such as lip or tongue rings that rub against the gum tissues
Without treatment, gum recession does not go away. In fact, it is only likely to worsen with time. This can cause more serious difficulties, including loose teeth and teeth that either fall out on their own or need to be removed. It is always best to allow Dr. McCourt to take the time to determine what is causing your gums to recede, as he can then explain how best to proceed.
What are the Treatment Options for Gum Recession?
The gum recession treatment that is recommended by Dr. McCourt will vary according to why your gums have receded. For instance, if the source of your gum recession is periodontal disease, Dr. McCourt will provide ways to stop the progression of the disease and mitigate any further gum recession. If your gums have receded dramatically, he may also recommend minimally invasive gum surgery such as the highly innovative Pinhole Surgical Technique™.
