Treating Gum Recession

If you are starting to notice an uneven gum line when you look in the mirror, you may also be experiencing sensitive teeth. These symptoms are caused by gingival recession. The most common cause of gingival recession is periodontal disease and, if left untreated, can lead to devastating bone and tooth loss. Dr. Jacqueline Subka is a periodontist offering treatment for gingival recession in Thousand Oaks, CA.

Once your gum tissue starts to wear away, it will not grow back on its own. You will need to seek treatment from Dr. Subka to obtain optimal oral health. Gum recession is not only unsightly, causing an uneven gum line and exposing tooth discoloration, but also causes sensitive teeth due to root exposure. Hot and cold foods may become difficult to eat and without the protective barrier of gum tissue, your teeth will be far more susceptible to root decay and damage.

Seek treatment for gingival recession as soon as possible and call Dr. Subka’s office to schedule your consultation in Thousand Oaks, CA today.

Do not live with the pain of sensitive teeth and the progression of periodontal disease which can lead to bone loss, tooth loss, and complications with other severe health conditions.
