Treating Gum Recession

For many, recession can be a symptom of a greater, underlying dental issue. Some of the key reasons to treat gum recession early on include:

  • May reduce the risk of loose teeth
  • Reduces pain and discomfort associated with inflammation of the gum tissue
  • Reduces tooth sensitivity
  • Restores a healthy looking smile
  • May reduce the risk of gum disease and other oral health problems

Treatment for Receding Gums in San Jose, CA

The most common cause of gum recession is periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is an aggressive bacterial infection in your mouth that, if left untreated, will lead to tooth and bone loss. Once jawbone is lost it does not grow back affecting not only your oral health but also the health of your entire body. Studies have shown periodontal disease has been linked to complications with other systemic health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer. Dr. Danielle Wehle offers her patients treatment for receding gums in San Jose, CA.

If you have sensitive teeth or suspect you have periodontal disease it is important that you get treatment from Dr. Wehle as soon as possible. Even with sensitive teeth, many patients cannot always see or feel the much worse damage being done by the bacteria below the surface. After a thorough oral evaluation Dr. Wehle can determine what is causing your gum recession and what the best method for treatment will be for your specific dental needs.

Why Treat Receding Gums?

There are multiple ways your gum recession can be treated and controlled including scaling and root planing, oral hygiene education, gum grafts, and the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. Whatever treatment Dr. Wehle decides is best for you, the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of receding gums remains the same:

  • Reduces pain of sensitive teeth
  • May lower the risk of loose and lost teeth
  • Restores a healthy-looking smile
  • Lowers the pain associated with inflamed gums
  • May lower the risk of periodontal disease and other systemic health conditions
Gum recession is an ongoing progressive health condition. Your symptoms will not stop at sensitive teeth. Early diagnosis and treatment of receding gums is paramount to your overall health. To prevent devastating tooth and bone loss, call Dr. Wehle’s office to schedule a comprehensive oral evaluation as soon as possible.
