Do Your Gums Repair Themselves – What Causes Receding Gums and How to Treat Them
Do your gums repair themselves? If they don’t, here are all the things you need to know about the disease and how to treat it.
Receding Gums: What Are They Actually?
Gums are there to protect your teeth. There are two ways that commonly used by the gums to protect the teeth. The first way is connecting your teeth to the bone by using the attached gingiva. Meanwhile, the second way is by suing unattached gingiva or sometimes called as gingival mucosa to protect the inner part of your gums and cheeks.
Receding gums occurs when gingival margin (gum tissue that surrounds your teeth) has pulled away from the teeth. As result, the roots of your teeth will be exposed and lead you to experience tooth loss. The receding gums occurred should not be ignored since they support the teeth. But, do your gums repair themselves? Unfortunately, the answer is “no.” This is because once your gums are pulled back and your teeth lose their support, there will be no way for the gums to grow back. In other words, the condition will last for good.
What Causes Receding Gums?
There are many factors that contribute to the occurrence of receding gums and some of them are:
- Gum Disease
One of the factors is gum disease which is caused by infection of bacteria and create destruction, redness, and inflammation. If the infection is not treated well, it will cause your gums to recede.
- Tobacco Use
If you are smoking, it will be very hard for your gums to manage gum recession. As result, your gums will lose their attachment and receding will occur.
- Abrasive Toothbrushing
If you brush your teeth aggressively, it will cause traumatic issues for your gums. Make sure to use soft–bristled toothbrush and brush your teeth gently to avoid any gum recession.
How to Treat Receding Gums?
Since receding gums cannot heal by themselves, treatment options are needed to treat them. One of the most common methods used to treat receding gums is gum graft. The treatment is meant to replace the lost gum tissues through surgery. The surgical procedure will require your dentist to take gum tissue from a certain area in your mouth to replace the lost ones. However, if the receding gums are just showing early signs, your dentist might not recommend you to do the surgical procedure. Instead of recommending surgery, your dentist will eliminate debris and bacteria from your gums before their tissues are attached.
