Receding Gum Treatment

Do your teeth look longer than they used to? Are you suffering from tooth sensitivity when coming in contact with extreme temperatures? These are signs that your gums are receding. While gum recession can appear as a cosmetic concern, it can also point to an oral health problem that needs to be addressed with general dentistry. At Gramercy Park, we will customize your plan for receding gum treatment based on the cause of your condition.

Gum recession can occur due to many reasons. The gums may gradually recede during the natural aging process, or you may have a certain oral habit that is causing your gums to shrink down. However, a leading cause of gum recession is gum disease. When the gums become inflamed or infected from tartar buildup, they tend to recede and even pull away from the tooth root. In such cases, periodontal therapy should be initiated to stop your gum recession and restore your gum health.

Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums

If disease or infection is present, the gums will respond with outward signs of irritation. Along with gum recession, you may notice that your gums look swollen, puffy or they bleed easily when you brush. While you may dismiss bleeding gums as a mild disruption, it can be the first warning sign of gingivitis, or early gum disease. It is important that you recognize these initial symptoms so that your gum health can be more easily restored. In many cases, bleeding or swollen gums can be remedied by practicing better hygiene, getting a professional dental cleaning or flossing more regularly.

Don’t ignore your receding or bleeding gums. We have an effective, long-term solution for you at Gramercy Park Dental.  Our office is staffed with an on-site, certified periodontist who can accurately diagnose your gum problems and provide prompt treatment.
