Treating Gum Recession (Receding Gums) in Denver
Dr. Brian Gurinsky treats gum recession in Denver and Centennial with advanced technology and expertise.
By the time pockets start forming around teeth, your gum health has become seriously compromised. Any delay at this point is detrimental to your health and appearance.
What is Gum Recession?
Gingival recession is a condition in which the soft-tissue that supports teeth begins to erode. Commonly referred to as receding gums, this progressive loss of gum tissue will eventually lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
Changes in gum health often go unnoticed in the early stages. Regular dental checkups are necessary to establish gum health and receive treatment to prevent gingival recession. The following symptoms may indicate that your gums are receding:
- Sensitive Teeth
- Longer-looking Teeth
- Visible Tooth Roots
- Inflammation of the Gum Line
Causes of Gum Recession
Bleeding gums and bad breath are characteristic of periodontal (gum) disease and infection. Bacterial infections cause the gums to recede from the teeth and form pockets.
Poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, some medications, and illness can all contribute to the development of periodontal disease. While patients may experience different symptoms, when gum disease progresses, it follows a predictable course. Receding gums are just one of the many complications of untreated gingivitis (early gum disease).
Treatment of Gum Recession
Dr. Gurinsky understands that every case of gum recession is slightly different and may respond better to one treatment over another depending on the underlying cause and the patient’s history. He offers several updated and innovative approaches that are not only effective but more comfortable to undergo than conventional methods.
Dr. Gurinsky also provides these advanced techniques to treat
- LANAP/Laser Periodontal Therapy
- Umbilical Cord/Stem Cell Research – Dr. Gurinsky is involved with all advancing studies for periodontal disease treatment.
- Chao Pinhole Technique™ - This approach a uses a needle to make a small hole in the patient’s existing gum tissue. Through this pinhole, the gum tissue is gently loosened and expanded to cover the exposed root structure. The pinhole technique requires no grafts, incisions, or sutures. It simply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue.
