Reverse Your Gum Recession
Gum recession makes a smile look unattractive, feel uncomfortable, and become unhealthy. It occurs when the gums at the base of the teeth begin to shrink, exposing the tooth roots underneath. These roots may be more of a yellow shade than the rest of the enamel, and are softer, which makes them more prone to temperature sensitivity, decay, and damage.
Due to multiple factors including gum disease, tobacco use, heredity, and teeth grinding, gum recession requires treatment. It won’t go away on its own. At Chelmsford Dental Group, our experienced periodontal team, including our board-certified periodontist, regularly screens for indications of recession. If we find any, we offer proven treatment for gum recession in Chelmsford, MA to restore your gums to a healthier state and a more flattering, youthful smile.
