Recession Treatment in Burlington, ON

Exposed root surfaces can cause various problems and look unattractive. Fortunately, our Burlington dentist can treat receding gums with a customized hygiene plan for each patient who suffers from this condition.

Causes of Receding Gums

Gums begin to recede when the tissue around your teeth wears down and exposes more of your teeth, possibly down to the root. This may dangerously create gaps that lead to bacteria buildup and serious repercussions like tooth loss because gum tissues and bone are unsupported.

There are a few different reasons for gum recession:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Genetic susceptibility
  • Brushing too hard
  • Changes in hormones
  • Negligent oral hygiene

Managing the Problem

Receding gums in Burlington, ON, are not uncommon, but gums that recede do so gradually, so patients may not even realize it is happening. If you notice your teeth are feeling sensitive or looking longer than before, contact our team at Blossom Smiles Dental to schedule a consultation. We can help gums from receding further and even help repair them:

  • Open flap scaling and root planing: This involves removing bacteria from the gum pockets and securing tissue in place over the root to remove or reduce gaps.
  • Regenerating: This involves a similar procedure as planing to remove bacteria and regenerate bone or tissue loss, but followed by the application and security of regenerative material to the area.
  • Soft tissue grafting: This involves cutting tissue from the roof of your mouth, under the skin, or occasionally gum near your tooth, and stitching it around the exposed root.
