Receded gums

Receded gums Toronto

Gum recession is the process in which the margin of the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth wears away, or pulls back, exposing more of the tooth, or the tooth's root. When gum recession occurs, "pockets," or gaps, form between the teeth and gum line, making it easy for disease-causing bacteria to build up. If left untreated, the supporting tissue and bone structures of the teeth can be severely damaged, and may ultimately result in tooth loss.

Gum recession is a common dental problem. Most people don't know they have gum recession because it occurs gradually. The first sign of gum recession is usually tooth sensitivity, or you may notice a tooth looks longer than normal. Typically, a notch can be felt near the gum line.

Gum recession is not something you want to ignore. If you think your gums are receding, make an appointment with Dr. David Sacoransky from Pacific Dental in Toronto . There are treatments that can repair the gum and prevent further damage.

Call Pacific Dental at (416) 762-9706 to book your appointment with Dr. David Sacoransky. We are conveniently located at 6 Pacific Avenue in Toronto, ON.
