As we age, there is no reason why your smile has to be 'long in the tooth'! It is not the case that as we age our gums naturally recede. If you notice that your crowns are getting longer, it is important to have your dentist examine your teeth.
What Causes Gum to Recede?
Some reasons include
Receding gums can be difficult to detect and will occur over time. Contact your dentist if you are experiencing the following symptoms:
The key to treating receding gums is to identify the cause. Once identified treatment can often times be quite simple. If overaggressive brushing is the cause, switching to a softer toothbrush and using a gentler brushing technique can help. If poor plaque control is the issue, regular dental cleanings and improved oral hygiene are a must. In more severe cases, we may have to perform an in-office procedure which will halt the bacteria's destruction of your gums and bone.
With some easy steps and regular consultations with your dentist your smile and beautiful gumline can last you a lifetime.Make an appointment
