How Tooth Loss Follows Receding Gums
Posted on 5/25/2018 by Andrew Weber
Have you noticed that your gums are receding? Do you know why this is happening? Do you know what can happen? Do you understand what follows the receding gums? Are you ready for the idea of tooth loss that could follow the receding gums? Is it time for you to learn how to connect all this. These are the things you need to think about. Reasons for Receding GumsThe struggles with receding gums come from different reasons. Trauma, genetics, teeth grinding, and poor oral hygiene are some of the reasons that people have receding gums. The problem that people run into is that they do not notice the problem until it is too late. The gums do not recede to a point where the teeth will fall out overnight. It is a gradual process that takes time to occur. Receding gums create a variety of issues that can lead to losing teeth. Over time, the receding gums will create gaps between the teeth and gums. Some may think that the gap will cause the teeth to loosen and that is what will cause them to fall out. That is not the only danger that people face. The gaps that the receding gums create allow bacteria in. The bacteria can cause tooth decay and other problems for the teeth. The damaged teeth are more likely to fall out as a result. The bacteria build-up can also lead to gum disease which will endanger the teeth as well. The good news is that there is treatment for receding gums. It is possible for our dental professionals to stop the receding gums before the teeth are in danger. The key is to catch the problem as early as possible and that is done through regular visits to our office. If you want to find out more about receding gums and the effect they have on your teeth, contact our professionals at the office and we will help you in any way we can....

How to Rebuild Gums After You Lose a Tooth
Posted on 5/15/2018 by Andrew Weber
Losing a tooth, whether you lose it due to trauma, decay, or a decision to remove it for some other reason, can have consequences beyond the initial discomfort and loss of the use of the tooth. One such complication that can arise is the loss of dental tissue in that area. Your gum tissue does much more than merely fill in the spaces between your teeth, and when you lose a tooth, you may find that your gum tissue is affected as well. Rebuilding Your GumsWe frequently see patients who ask what can be done to restore the condition of their mouths to what it should be. While there are a few different options to consider, the most common one is getting gum tissue grafts. While gum tissue grafts are not always appropriate in every situation, they do tend to work in the majority of the cases we see. Gum grafts allow you to quickly and effectively rebuild the tissue in the affected area. What's more, getting a gum graft is a procedure with a relatively short recovery time. This means that you can come see us, get the grafts done, and be back on your feet within a few days. A short period after that, your gum tissue will be healed enough that you can begin to eat normal food again. Questions? Come See Us!Of course, we understand that the choice to get gum grafts is one that may be somewhat disconcerting to you. Any time we discuss surgery, no matter how minor, some people simply don't like it. To this end, we want you to know we are here to help. If you have any questions about gum grafts, feel free to pick up the phone and give us a call. We're always here to help!...
