Gum recession is a problem that occurs over time, sometimes over many years. Because of its progressive nature, it is possible to have this problem and not know it. At first, signs of recession are very subtle. The initial exposure of root surfaces may cause your teeth to feel sensitive to varying temperatures. You may feel notches near the gum line or notice that your teeth appear longer than they used to. If you experience any of these symptoms, we encourage you to schedule care with us. Our experienced team offers you a comfortable environment in which your oral health can be expertly managed.
Finding the cause
Recession of gingival tissue is often associated with gum disease. However, there are other reasons why this problem may develop. Like gum disease, recession may be a genetic issue. Hereditary factors aside, some people notice a greater extent of recession as a result of hygiene habits. Attempts to reach optimal cleanliness may lead to over aggressive brushing. Abrasions from toothbrush bristles can break down healthy gum tissue, allowing more tooth structure to become visible. Grinding and clenching, as well as poor alignment may also be contributing factors to receding gums.
Treating gum recession
It is important to obtain treatment for receding gums because the consequences of this condition extend far beyond the appearance of your smile. When gum tissue becomes weak, it pulls away from the tooth structure. This allows pockets to form. Bacteria can flourish in these small spaces. These unhealthy organisms are protected within pockets, which enables them to promote acidity further the development of periodontal disease.
