Restore Receding Gums And Reduce Sensitivity In SW Calgary Dental Clinic
Your gums play a vital role in protecting the roots of your teeth. But over time, you might witness your gums receding, leaving the roots of your teeth more exposed and liable to decay and infection.
You’ll know if you have gum recession as your teeth will look longer than normal. Also called gingival recession, you may also experience extra tooth sensitivity, especially when they are exposed to extreme temperatures, like when you are drinking hot tea or coffee.
As an experienced SW Calgary dentist, Dr Tran’s advice is not to leave gum recession untreated, as this can result in the premature ageing of your gums or teeth, and can contribute to bone and tissue loss. Gums will continue to recede unless you take steps to stop them. You will be at risk of increased tooth sensitivity, daily pain and discomfort, and tooth and root decay due to exposure. There’s also a risk of periodontal disease. All of these above conditions will usually require corrective surgery, but all are potentially avoidable by getting your teeth and gums regularly checked by the SW Calgary dental clinic team at ADx Dental.
