End Tooth Sensitivity And Rebuild A Healthy Gum Line

Hiding a smile because of receding gums can impact your daily lifestyle. If your gums have worn away because of gum disease or an injury to the mouth, Dr. Khaimov can perform a simple but effective gum recession treatment that corrects this condition. Dr. Khaimov uses a special gum grafting technique to treat gum recession so you can smile with confidence again!

  • Gum Recession Causes

    You might have receding gums due to gum damage over the years. Your gums might start to wear away if you are using the wrong type of toothbrush or if you have a teeth grinding habit (bruxism).

    For some, gum recession can progress very slowly. It is most noticeable when you appear to have longer teeth since more of the tooth root is showing. If you notice any signs of gum recession, call us for an appointment right away! We can resolve the issue with a simple gum grafting procedure and protect your smile.

Ways of Preventing Gum Recession In the Future

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is essential for keeping gum disease at bay and warding off gum recession. Making some changes in your daily habits can also help prevent gums from receding in the first place. Avoiding habits of chewing on objects or ice will reduce the risk of gum damage.

Other ways you can prevent gum recession:

  • - Avoid aggressive tooth brushing
  • - Use a soft bristle toothbrush
  • - Take care of poorly positioned teeth
  • - Break a teeth grinding habit
  • - Wear a night guard while sleeping
