Am I a Good Candidate?

What is Gum Recession?

gum surgery candidate with a Charlotte dentist BallantyneThe gum rejuvenation technique is a solution for those experiencing gum recession in the Charlotte, Ballantyne and Myers Park area. Gum recession occurs when a patient’s gums begin to move up from the tip of the tooth (recede). You may have heard the expression that someone is getting “long in the tooth” as they age. This is a reference to the appearance of the tooth getting longer, when in actuality it is only the act of gum recession. Though aging is associated with gum recession, other factors are often the cause.

WEAR AND TEAR | Every day you are putting unintentional stress and wear on your teeth and gums. This wear and tear can lead to gum recession.
BRUSHING TOO HARD | Brushing your teeth isn’t meant to have negative consequences. Using abrasive toothpaste, hard bristled brushes and brushing too hard can all contribute to receding gums.
GUM DISEASE | Some stats say as much as half the country suffers from some form of gum disease, which can cause gum recession.
GRINDING TEETH | Bruxism (teeth grinding) doesn’t just hurt your teeth, it can also lead to gum recession requiring gum surgery.

Signs You Might Have Gum Recession

Aside from visual confirmation that your gums have indeed receded, some of the other early warning signs of a larger issue with your gums include:

  • Swollen, red, or purple gums
  • Pus between your teeth and gums
  • A bad taste in your mouth
  • A difference in the way your teet fit together when biting
  • Loose teeth
  • Increased sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Bad breath
