Receding Gum Treatment
Receding gums, also known as gingival recession, occurs when there is a loss of gum tissue at the base of the tooth. This can not only lead to sensitivity and longer-looking teeth, but it also leaves the tooth vulnerable to decay, infection and even loss. At Pure Dental Health in Dunwoody, we offer specialized treatments to reverse the process of gum recession and restore your oral health.
While gum recession can occur at any age, it is most common in aging adults. The gums can recede or pull back as a result of aggressive brushing habits, the natural aging process or periodontal disease. It is important for patients to seek treatment at the first signs of gum recession. Our Dunwoody office is equipped with the latest and most proven technology to rebuild and treat gums that are diminished or otherwise unhealthy. Treatment can range from deep cleanings or medicine to address infection to tissue grafts, laser gum therapy and more.
Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums
If your gums look puffy or inflamed, this could be a sign of early gum disease or gingivitis. Gingivitis is also marked by gums that bleed easily, especially when brushing or flossing. These are gum symptoms that should never be ignored. Gum disease is easily treated and reversed at this early stage. Through better oral hygiene measures or a deep cleaning (scaling and root planing), we can restore your gums to ideal health.
