What is the Gum Recession?
Regen Turkey Clinic

Gum recession is a common oral and dental problem seen at all ages. Because gum recession happens gradually, most people do not realize that their gums are receding. Gum problems can occur due to different reasons. With treatments such as regular dental check-ups and scaling, you can prevent gum and gingival recession problems or ensure early diagnosis. Among the symptoms of gum recession, the most common symptom is bleeding when brushing teeth or at normal times.

If you are experiencing symptoms such as redness and swelling of the gums, the appearance of the teeth longer than normal, bleeding from the teeth when eating hard food, you should contact your dentist immediately. Gum recession causes dental caries, which makes dental caries treatment mandatory.

How Are Gums and Gum Recession Treated?

If your gingival and gingival recession problem is mild, it is treated by the dentist by thoroughly cleaning the area around the gingiva. During a deep cleaning, plaque and tartar on the teeth and roots are carefully removed, and the exposed root surface is smoothed so that bacteria do not adhere. If the dentist deems it necessary, antibiotic treatment can be applied to get rid of the remaining bacteria.

If your gingival recession is too much to be cleaned thoroughly, gingival surgery may be required to remove the damage to the gingiva.

Surgical Methods Used to Treat Gum and Gum Recession

In the open flap operation, the dentist folds back the affected gingival tissue, removes harmful bacteria from the pocket, and fixes the tooth tissue on the root of the tooth, reducing it or removing it completely. Guided tissue regeneration is applied when the bone that feeds the teeth is damaged. Bacteria are removed by folding back the gum tissue. The regenerative agent is applied to the area and the gum tissue is fixed. In a soft tissue graft, tissue taken from the upper palate or another area is sutured to the gingival tissue surrounding the exposed root. Your doctor will choose the best surgical method according to your needs.

Who is at Risk for Gum Recession?

Although gingival recession can occur at any age, age poses a risk in gingival recession. Approximately 88% of people aged 65 and over have gum recession problems. Gum recession is more common in people who use tobacco or smoke. Gum recession can also be genetic. Diabetes also increases the risk of gum recession. If you are faced with such situations, you should resort to periodontology treatment.

How to Prevent Gum Recession?

The most effective way to prevent gum and gum recession problems is to give importance to oral and dental care. Regular brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups are effective ways to prevent gum recession. You can protect your general health and oral health by taking good care of your teeth.
