Importance of Gum Recession Treatment

The Importance of Treating Receding Gums in Paradise Valley, AZ

Gum recession is not something that should be ignored. Although it may not interfere with daily life in the beginning,symptoms such as sensitive teeth can quickly escalate and cause severe discomfort or worse. Patients of Dr. Alison P. Schwartz are encouraged to seek treatment for receding gums in Paradise Valley, AZ to avoid serious cosmetic and functional problems.
Cosmetic ProblemsCosmetic issues are at times the first symptoms of gum disease noticed by patients. Problems such as “long teeth” and discoloration can drive patients to seek treatment before more serious functional issues occur. When the gum line recedes, a larger area of the tooth becomes exposed and gives a “longer” appearance which many patients find unattractive. Additionally, stains and discoloration near the gum line are more noticeable due to the darker root portions being exposed.

Functional Problems

Untreated gum recession can also cause a number of health and functional issues. For example, without gum tissue to protect teeth from bacteria, the chances of root cavities developing are much greater. Sensitive teeth is another common issue that results when tooth roots become exposed. Because of the increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, sensitive teeth can prevent some patients from enjoying certain foods and beverages.

In some cases, gum recession can have much more serious consequences than tooth decay and sensitive teeth. When root surfaces become exposed, the risk of structural damage to these areas is greatly increased. Overaggressive tooth brushing or even clenching and grinding of the teeth can result in loss of structure, weakening the tooth over time.

Gum recession renders far more than merely cosmetic issues. To learn more about the importance of treating gum recession in Paradise Valley, AZ, contact Dr. Schwartz and schedule your consultation today!
