Do Not Ignore the Signs of Gum Recession

Due to an oral infection, improper dental health care or genetics, people can experience gum recession. This is when the gum tissue pulls back from the teeth, making them appear longer than normal. The periodontists at Shenandoah Valley Implant Institute have seen this recession numerous times before, and they recommend watching out for common symptoms so that patients can seek treatment as quickly as possible.
 The Signs  
A receding gum line is not always readily apparent. Additionally, it will be accompanied by other symptoms that indicate a larger oral health problem is at play.
·         New spaces appear between teeth
·         Chronic bad breath
·         Loose teeth
·         Constant bad taste in mouth
·         Tenderness in gum tissue
·         Gums appear purple or red
·         Swollen gums
·         Severe sensitivity to cold and hot items
·         Teeth fit together differently
Gums can recede over the course of several months or even years, so seek treatment at the first sign of trouble.
 The Treatment  
The professionals at the Shenandoah Valley Implant Institute are proficient with a treatment known as the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. This treatment is minimally invasive and only requires our periodontist to make a tiny hole in the gum tissue. Using special tools to loosen the tissue, it can then be moved back over the teeth into a more attractive position. It is less intensive than gum grafting and doesn’t require donor tissue.
