Do Receding Gums Grow Back ?

One indicator of gum tissue is the popular occurrence of the gums receding.

Signs of Receding Gums

● If your teeth suddenly start to appear longer, sometimes as far back as the root.

Other signs of gum problems may include:

● Swollen or Bleeding Gums

● Bad Breath

● Pain

● Oral infection

● Plaque buildup

● Tooth loss

What You Can Do

Fear not, gum recession isn’t hopeless!

Recession can be paused or replaced through dental treatments. 

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling is a deep clean to remove plaque and tartar buildup under the gums. It removes the damaging bacteria before it gets the chance to affect your gums. 

Root planing helps to ensure the roots of your teeth are properly attached to the gums.

Other Options

For more severe recession, treatments can include

● Open Flap Surgery

● Regeneration Therapy

● Soft tissue grafts
