Receding Gums - Phoenix, AZ

Receding Gums

Valley Smiles understands that receding gums can cause a lot of pain for patients. That’s why we offer receding gums treatment to patients in the Phoenix area. Our extensive periodontic treatments aim to restore your gums to a healthy state. 

What causes gums to recede?

There are several things that can cause your gums to recede. These include: brushing too hard, using a toothbrush with hard bristles, gum disease, and tooth grinding. In some cases, gums can also recede due to hormonal changes, genetic factors, or certain medications. If you’re concerned about your gums receding, it’s important to visit Valley Smiles so we can assess the situation and recommend the best course of treatment.

In some cases, simply changing your brushing technique or switching to a soft-bristled toothbrush may be enough to solve the problem. However, if your gums are significantly receded, you may need more aggressive treatment.

Bleeding and swollen gums are also a sign of gum recession and are usually correlated with gum disease. When your gums recede, the root of your tooth becomes exposed. This exposed root is much more sensitive to bacteria and decay than the rest of your tooth. As a result, you are more likely to experience gum inflammation and bleeding. 

Whether you are currently dealing with gum recession or you’re looking to prevent it, the experts at Valley Smiles can help. Our caring and compassionate team looks to ensure your oral health. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
