Gum Recession Dentist Woodbridge & Vaughan​

You have probably heard about gum recession. This health condition occurs when the margin of the gum tissue surrounding your teeth wears away and pulls back. This exposes your teeth roots. When gums recede, ‘pockets’ or gaps form between the teeth and gum line, making it easy for infection-causing bacteria to buildup. If not treated on time, the bone structure of your teeth and bone tissue can suffer severe damage. You can count on our expertise and many years of experience to restore your gum health and protect your teeth.  

What Causes Gum Recession?

According to the dentists at Pine Valley Dentistry, the most common causes of gum recession include:

  • Genetics
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Excessive use of tobacco
  • Lip and tongue piercing
  • Hormonal changes
  • Periodontal disease
  • Bite misalignment and crooked teeth
  • Improper tooth brushing
  • Clenching or grinding of teeth
  • Poor dental hygiene

Our certified dentists warn that gum recession occurs gradually. So, many people may not realize that their gum line is receding until they begin to experience extreme teeth sensitivity or begin to see gaps. The moment you realize your teeth seem longer than normal, it could be because your gums are receding. It’s time to schedule an appointment with the experts at Pine Valley Dentistry for a checkup. Our dentists know the earliest signs of receding gums and can help fight this issue long before it gets worse.

Treatment Options

As mentioned earlier, there are many causes of receding gums. If your gums are receding due to periodontal disease, we can offer deep cleaning that eliminates tartar and plaque buildup around your teeth and the areas below your gum line. Some cases may require the use of antibiotics to eliminate the harmful bacteria camping in the spaces between your gums and teeth.

If you are battling with gum recession due to functional factors, mechanical factors, or periodontal disease, the dentists at Pine Valley Dentistry might recommend dental surgery to get the damaged gum tissues repaired. A soft tissue graft is a common procedure when it comes to restoring damaged gums. This procedure involves applying tissue grafts from the patient’s mouth or an approved donor graft to the affected section to encourage tissue generation within your gums. 

Before the onset of this procedure, our dentist will talk to you and help you understand every step involved and the necessary preparations needed. Remember, we work tirelessly to restore our patients’ beautiful smiles and ensure better dental health.

Tips to Prevent Gum Recession

At Pine Valley Dentistry, we firmly believe that taking care of your mouth and maintaining a good oral care hygiene regimen can help prevent gum recession. A few tips to prevent this dental problem include:

  • Quitting the use of tobacco and smoking
  • Monitoring various changes that occur in your mouth
  • Seeing your periodontist or dentist regularly
  • Eating a well-balanced diet
  • Correcting teeth grinding issues or a misaligned bite
  • Using a toothbrush with soft bristles
  • Brushing your teeth effectively and safely
