If you have started to notice that there is more of your tooth surface showing than usual, you are likely suffering from receding gums. Whether the condition is the result of a serious oral health condition or the first sign of one developing, you need to seek immediate consultation with your dentist. Jefferson Dental Care provides comprehensive exams, which are the first best defense against conditions of the teeth, gum and jaws.
Receding gums may occur as the result of poor hygiene, which is something that we can easily remedy at Jefferson Dental Care with general dentistry and education. Infections are one of the many causes of receding gums, often arising from food particles becoming trapped in hard to reach places. Plaque buildup and decaying food provide the perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums
If you do not seek relief from bleeding or swollen gums, the problem will only grow worse with time. Infection and pain will further inflame the gums, leaving you feeling miserable and unable to properly eat or drink. Bleeding or swollen gums caused by infection will not get any better without treatment. It is also important that you consult with Jefferson Dental Care to receive better oral hygiene education.
During treatment at our Georgia office, your dental technician and dentist will explain the procedure and how the process will clear your teeth and gums of infection. We will also provide further education at this point on better oral hygiene, much of which will focus on your specific needs. At Jefferson Dental Care, we do not believe that a general approach to oral health is good enough for our patients.
