Treatment for Receding Gums in Marshfield, MO

If you are noticing signs of gum recession or other gum disease symptoms, you must contact Dr. Vance for an appointment as soon as possible. One of the signs of progressing gum disease is gum tissue that is pulling away from the tooth structure. For many patients, gum recession is accompanied by inflammation of the tissue, gum pain, and tooth sensitivity. Seeking treatment when you notice these warning signs can protect your oral health.

Importance of Receiving Gum Recession Treatment

If you are experiencing tooth sensitivity or are noticing that your gums are receding, this may be a result of progressing gum disease. Periodontal disease is the primary cause of gum recession. Therefore, Dr. Vance may recommend periodontal therapy prior to treating the gum recession to help arrest and control this gum infection.

The type of gum recession treatment you receive will depend on the root cause of the problem.
