Seek Timely Care for Receding Gums

Healthy gum tissue attaches snuggly around the teeth, forming a protective collar around the sensitive tooth root and blocking bacteria from attacking below the hard enamel of the crown. Gum recession occurs when this soft tissue begins to recede away from the teeth, exposing the tooth roots. Timely treatment for gum recession is important, as receding gums and the newly exposed tooth roots can become more susceptible to bacteria. Eventually, the supporting gums and bone surrounding the teeth can deteriorate and may be lost. Dr. James Rogers can effectively treat your gum recession and restore health to your teeth and gums with traditional gum grafting or the minimally invasive Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.

Signs of Receding Gums

Even if you maintain good oral hygiene and health, you may still experience symptoms of gum recession. If you have been noticing your gums are more sensitive or bleed easily, you have increased tooth sensitivity, chronic bad breath, or longer appearing teeth, you may be experiencing the beginning stages of gum recession. There are many possible reasons you may experience receding gums, some of which may even be outside of your control.

Gum Recession Causes

  • Aggressive tooth brushing
  • Genetics
  • Gum disease
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Tobacco use
  • Soft tissue trauma

Halt Symptoms with Effective Treatment

Dr. Rogers offers one of the most revolutionary gum recession treatments in dentistry, the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™). Unlike traditional gum grafting, PST is minimally invasive and eliminates the need for scalpels, incisions, and sutures. PST offers patients a more comfortable procedure experience and more favorable results, with effective treatment of multiple teeth in a single visit. Many patients report high levels of satisfaction with this alternative option. Traditional gum grafting surgery can also effectively halt gum recession, though the invasive nature of the procedure may be daunting. Depending on your oral health needs, we will evaluate the current level of your gum recession and recommend the treatment option that will provide you with more favorable results.
