Options for Treating Gum Recession

Many times a gum graft is needed to reverse receding gums but other options include:

Periodontal therapy - Dr. Wehle’s highly trained hygienist can treat your gum recession and possible periodontal disease with scaling and root planing. This is a specialized deep cleaning below the gum line. You can be numbed for this procedure and also receive antibiotics to treat the bacterial infection.
Gum graft - A piece of soft tissue from another site in your mouth or donor material is used to cover up sites of recession.
Using a soft-bristled or electric toothbrush - The solution to your receding gums might be as simple as switching to a softer toothbrush and receiving proper oral hygiene instructions. Many patients do not realize overaggressive and improper brushing/flossing can do severe damage to their teeth and gums.
Pinhole Surgical Technique™ - A ‘breakthrough’ minimally invasive technique to treat gum recession without cutting or stitches. This procedure reduces pain and recovery time associated with traditional gum recession surgery.

You do not have to live with the pain and embarrassment you may be experiencing with gingival recession and periodontal disease. To find out more about what you can do to reverse receding gums call Dr. Wehle’s office to schedule your consultation today!
