Gum Recession Treatment

Receding Gums & What We Can Do

Receding gums can be caused by a number of factors, and can occur so gradually, many people do not realize the condition is taking place. Our gums provide a barrier around the teeth to protect the root surfaces and underlying bone. When gums recede, it can cause tooth sensitivity and allow bacteria a place to harbor. Dr. Siny Thomas is proud to offer a minimally invasive solution to restore the health of your gums, with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.

Common Causes of Gum Recession Include:

  • Gum disease
  • Genetics
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Tobacco use

If your gums are receding, you may notice:

  • An uneven gum line
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Loose teeth
  • Dark, triangular spacing between teeth
  • Notch or dent near the gum line
  • Darker tooth coloration near the gum line
