RECEDING GUMS

FTS-Receding_Gums-Section1

When gums recede or wear away, they draw back, leaving the teeth more exposed. Age can be factor, with many of us noticing we have less gum coverage on all or some of our teeth as we grow older.

In some cases, the gums recede more quickly than we’d expect at a younger case. Common causes are poor oral hygiene and excessively hard brushing, which can lead to diseased or inflamed gums. Grinding your teeth, smoking or wearing poorly fitting dentures can all impact on the health of your gums, as can having a misaligned bite or experiencing an injury. 

Receding gums have an effect on the appearance of your smile – you might have more tooth on display and the recession can be uneven, creating asymmetry. This can lead to self-consciousness and have an impact on your confidence. You might also experience painful sensitivity, as parts of the tooth’s root not protected by enamel are exposed. 

Regular dental check-ups and hygiene sessions are important in tackling receding gums. Your dentist or hygienist can identify early gum disease and treat it before recession begins. If the gums have already started to recede, specialist periodontal treatments can help by halting infection and deep cleaning plaque from the gumline.

At Face Teeth Smile we use digital technology to monitor and treat receding gums. Digital scans are taken of your teeth at each dental check-ups and compared to see whether gums are receding over time.

Cosmetic dentistry treatments such as gum contouring can be used to improve the appearance and symmetry of the gums. If you’re concerned about receding gums, visit us for a consultation – we’ll carry out a thorough assessment, diagnose the reason for recession and create a bespoke plan to improve your condition.
