Receding Gum Treatment

Do your teeth look longer than they used to? Are you experiencing tooth sensitivity when exposed to hot or cold temperatures? These are signs that your gums may be receding. While gum recession can certainly be harmless and occur during the natural aging process, some types of gum recession need to be evaluated further. At Gwinnett Family Dental Care, we offer the most proven treatments for gum recession in a comfortable and caring atmosphere. Our skilled dentists are trained to determine the cause of your receding gums and deliver the most appropriate treatment. Whether you have receding gums due to gum disease or it is simply a cosmetic concern as you've aged, we can help.

Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums

Beyond receding gums, some patients may also note that their gums look swollen or bleed easily. We encourage you to seek treatment for these symptoms sooner rather than later. Red, puffy or bleeding gums are often the first sign of gum disease or gingivitis. At this early stage, it is often possible to restore your gum health by getting a professional cleaning and practicing better oral hygiene at home. Our dentists will also discuss your specific risk factors for gum disease, as it may be that you need to change a certain lifestyle habit to keep your gums in better condition.

At Gwinnett Family Dental Care, we take your gum health seriously. The condition of your gums plays a vital role in your dental health as well as your body health. If you are experiencing gum recession or bleeding gums, please contact us today to make an appointment at our Lawrenceville office. You'll be met with a superior, patient-centered approach and the latest dental technology in the industry.
