Dental care isn’t limited to treatments for your teeth. Your teeth are simply one type of tissue in your mouth. Other tissues include your tongue, jaw, and gums. While caring for your teeth is a vital part of maintaining your oral health, these other tissues sometimes need care as well.
Caring for these structures is one of the many ways we contribute to your overall oral health here at Robert Matlach Dental. Certain conditions, like periodontal disease, can have a dramatic impact on the structures that support your teeth. In cases like these, we can offer treatment to help you maintain your oral health.
This is why Robert Matlach Dental is pleased to offer receding gums treatment to our patients.
What Are Receding Gums?
Receding gums are caused by certain factors, including gum disease brought on by poor dental hygiene. You can also cause gum recession by brushing your teeth too hard.
If you have receding gums, the gum line of your teeth has pulled back, exposing more of your tooth. This can create a lot of problems for your oral health.
If you’ve noticed changes in your gum line, you should make an appointment to come see us.
Receding Gums Treatment
When treating receding gums, the first task is to ensure that your mouth is healthy. We will carefully examine your mouth to check for signs of gum disease, which must be treated in order to protect your oral health.
Depending on what we find with this careful examination, we may discuss changes to your oral care routine. Practicing good habits over a period of time may allow help your body readjust the gum line.
If regular oral hygiene habits don’t make a difference, Robert Matlach Dental offers gum recession surgery to readjust your gum line.
Gum Recession Surgery
Gum recession surgery is a type of periodontal plastic surgery. It involves moving healthy gum tissue and transplanting it onto other areas of the mouth where the gums are receding. Once the surgery is finished, patients who previously had receding gums will see a marked improvement on the gum coverage of their teeth.
Your teeth need this gum tissue in order to remain healthy. Without adequate support from your gum tissue, your teeth could fall out. Periodontal plastic surgery is an investment in the health of your entire mouth.
