For many, recession can be a symptom of a greater, underlying dental issue. Some of the key reasons to treat gum recession early on include:
Gingival recession occurs when your soft gum tissue starts to pull away from your teeth and exposes the root structures. This can cause severe sensitivity and be a symptom of a progressive dental condition like periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can lead to bone loss, loose teeth, and eventual tooth loss. This condition is serious and treatment should be sought immediately. Dr. Bruce Lachot and Dr. Kent Loo are general dentists in Scottsdale, AZ offering treatment for periodontal disease and resulting gum recession in their office.
Gum recession not only damages your soft tissue, it greatly increases the risk of further oral complications. As the primary cause of gum recession, periodontal disease is not something that will go away; in fact, it will likely become worse and may lead to loose teeth if left untreated.
