Gum Recession

Dentist Stevens Point

Gum recession is the progressive loss of gum tissue over time. This is generally caused by poor oral hygiene habits or periodontal disease. It is most common in people over the age of 40, but can begin much sooner in some cases. If left untreated, gum recession can result in the exposure of teeth roots, a serious oral health issue.

Common symptoms that may be found with gum recession include teeth sensitivity, visible teeth roots, teeth appearing longer, inflamed or bleeding gums.

Treatment of gum recession varies depending on the cause. Some common treatments include:

  • Oral hygiene education
  • Professional teeth cleaning
  • Scaling and root planing
  • Gum grafting
  • Gum tissue regeneration

If you think you may have gum recession, schedule a consultation with our doctor today.
