Receding gums may be a sign of underlying health issues such as periodontal disease. You must set up an appointment with Dr. Yazbeck, general dentist
as soon as you notice symptoms of gum disease, such as tooth sensitivity, inflammation, and receding gums. Early treatment can prevent periodontal disease from progressing to loose teeth and eventual tooth loss, and help you maintain optimal oral health.
Importance of Receiving Gum Recession Treatment
If you notice your gums are pulling away from the tooth or you have some tooth sensitivity, you must seek treatment for these periodontal disease symptoms as soon as possible. Dr. Yazbeck, general dentist
may first recommend periodontal therapy
to restore your oral health if this is the cause of your gum recession. For some patients, scaling and root planing
may be necessary. For others, laser gum surgery may be required to eradicate the infection in the mouth and restore the health of the gums.
Once periodontal disease is controlled, we can then provide treatment to restore your receding gums. Dr. Yazbeck, general dentist
will determine the best course of action for your specific situation, which may be either gum grafting surgery
or treatment with PST™
Since periodontal disease is a progressive condition, some of the symptoms such as receding gums may go unnoticed in the early stages. To identify, treat, and prevent the onset of loose teeth, schedule a consultation for periodontal disease and gum recession treatment in Ahuntsic-Cartierville, Montreal with Dr. Yazbeck, general dentist
