Dr. Trujillo may recommend treatment options to address gum recession and alleviate the gum pain you are experiencing. Repairing your gums may be part of the periodontal treatment process and does not require extensive surgery. Dr. Trujillo may recommend a gum graft that involves restoring the gum line by grafting tissue from the roof of the mouth or by using donor material. In other cases, he may elect to provide PST™
, a new, minimally invasive gum recession treatment that repairs this condition through a small entry point in the gum tissues.
Receding gums may cause gum pain and also make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Gum recession is one of the side effects of progressing periodontal disease and you must have the infection treated before you undergo gum recession treatment. Seeking treatment for gum recession is important, though, as the gum tissues will not grow back once they have receded. Exposed roots increase your chances of root surface cavities and damage to this structure.
Prevention and early treatment of gum recession are essential for restoring your oral health. To learn more about options for treatment, set up your consultation with Dr. Trujillo
