Why Gum Recession Treatment Could Give Your Mouth New Life

Finding out you have the signs of gum recession can be a little alarming. Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue in the mouth begins to erode and failing to treat this condition could lead to serious problems in your dental health. Dr. Steven Saunders and Dr. Victor Saunders are periodontists in Harrisonburg, VA who specialize in keeping your gums healthy and strong. We stress the importance of treating gum recession to help prevent tooth loss, discomfort and other embarrassing oral issues. Here are some reasons why gum recession treatment could help you.

Less Pain  
If you have chronic pain around your teeth, receding gums may to be to blame. Left untreated, this may leave the root of your tooth exposed, which can make your teeth more sensitive to hot and cold foods. We help build your gum tissue back up to bring back that protection around the base of your teeth.

Fewer Infections  
Receding gums can also expose your mouth to more potential infections. Cavities, painful abscesses and ulcers are more common with problem gums. After treatment, your gums can be stronger and ward off these potential issues.

Stronger Teeth  
Severe gum recession makes your teeth loose and increases your risk of tooth loss. Once one or two teeth are missing, your bite could shift and lead to even more tooth loss. After gum recession treatment from our doctors, your teeth will be more stable and be less likely to fall out.

Healthier Mouth
Most of all, gum recession treatment allows you to have a healthier mouth. With strong teeth and healthy gums, you can feel more confident smiling and eating your favorite foods. Ignoring gum recession issues means you are more likely to have recurring problems with your oral health.
