The gums are composed of tissues found in the mouth at the base of the teeth. They are attached to the jawbone and protect the roots. Damaged gum tissues cause gum recession, exposing teeth to bacteria and plaque.
Most people with receding gums are not aware of their gums’ condition. The following symptoms may occur when gums recede:
When gum recession is mild, you will not need treatment. Your Newmarket dentist will recommend preventive measures and will continue to monitor your gum condition. However, for people who need treatment, here are the procedures which they can consider :
The dentist uses resins to cover the surface of the roots. They will fill in the gaps or spaces in the teeth as well. In filling the gaps, they apply pink composite to the gums.
They are made of silicone and replace the missing gums because of the recession.
The dentist transplants tissue to the mouth to heal the gum recession. Usually, this would only be required to treat severe receding gums.
The treatment involves realigning the teeth and adjusting the gum margins. Orthodontics makes it easier to maintain clean teeth.
