What causes loose gums?
Loose gums, or receding gums, can be caused by a variety of reasons, including:
- Aggressive brushing of the teeth and gums
- Tartar (hardened plaque)
- Periodontal disease
- Smoking cigarettes / Shisha
- Hormonal changes
- Dry mouth
Why are loose gums a concern?
Your gums are there to protect your teeth, and when loose or receding gums occur, it can leave the roots of the teeth exposed and more susceptible to cavities. These pockets that develop between the teeth and gums can also harbor bacteria that can worsen the loosening as well.
What is the treatment for loose gums?
Loose gums are sometimes referred to as “receding gums” and need to be addressed as soon as possible. The treatment for loose gums is that of gum grafting, during which donor material is used to recreate the gum tissue and gum line.Usually this procedure is done when the gums are infection free.Gum grafting is an effective way of restoring the smile after gum recession and continues to be an important part of the treatment plan for those who are ready to protect their smile and improve its appearance after more severe cases of periodontal disease.
When do I have gum treatment performed?
Gum recession should be monitored closely, especially in patients who have developed periodontal disease. Once the infection has been controlled, gum grafting is often suggested by our team at this time. Patients need to show long-term improvement in the health of their smile before we will move forward with treatment.
