Redondo Beach Dental Group offers gum recession treatment in Redondo Beach, California. Gum recession often happens when the tissue of your gums recedes back from the roots of your teeth and can be caused by periodontal disease. To learn more about this treatment, call our dental office at 310-542-6988 and schedule a consultation with our dentists, Dr. Fred C. Stalley and associates.

When your gums recede, your tooth roots are exposed, increasing the risk for tooth loss. Gum recession occurs gradually in the earliest stages of development, making it difficult to self-diagnose. This is one reason your regular dental appointments are so important: they can help identify gum recession in the earliest stages.

Gum recession may be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Overaggressive brushing
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Periodontal disease
  • Use of tobacco products

Some common symptoms of gum recession include:

  • Sensitive teeth
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • Teeth that look longer
  • Inflammation
  • Easy bleeding of the gums
  • Halitosis (bad breath)

Our dentists may recommend various treatments to help halt and correct gum recession. When you visit our office, we will carefully examine your mouth to determine the extent of your gum recession and recommend the treatment that will be most beneficial for you. Treatments range from using a softer toothbrush and a gentler brushing technique to deep dental cleanings and gum surgery or soft tissue grafting.
