Receding Gum Treatment

Protecting your gum health is a vital component of overall oral wellness. Bacteria can attack the gum tissues causing them to recede, swell and bleed. Without general dental treatment, it can lead to gum disease, tooth loss and higher risk for many serious health issues. At Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we look for early signs of gingivitis or gum disease and offer treatment to protect your oral health.

If your gums begin to recede, become inflamed or bleed when you brush, you may have gingivitis. Not only can this be uncomfortable and change the appearance of your smile, it can be dangerous to your health. The bacteria that cause gum disease hide in the crevices of your teeth and live in tartar that builds up from plaque that is not removed. Good oral hygiene and regular professional dental cleanings can help keep tartar and bacteria in check, but if the gum tissue is infected, you need treatment to restore gum health.

Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums

If you notice your gums are tender, swollen or receding or there is blood present in your spit after brushing, call to schedule a periodontal exam and cleaning at our office. Our hygienist will examine and measure the gaps between your gums and teeth. The exam will help our hygienist and dentist determine the best treatment option to restore gum health. If caught early, deep or more frequent cleanings can help reverse gum infection. There are also special mouthwashes available to help fight infection between cleanings that you can use as part of your home oral care.

If you have receding gums or notice any other signs of deteriorating gum health, contact Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today to schedule a checkup and cleaning. We can help restore your gum health and give you relief from bleeding or swollen gums.
