Gum Care At Perfect Smile Spa
Our gum care services are extensive, professional and cutting edge, available in our professional and modern dental surgery in Essex.
As anchors for the teeth, and protectors of the sensitive nerves that sit beneath the gum line, the gums require special care and attention just like the teeth. At Perfect Smile Spa, we offer cosmetic treatment for gums that patients may feel overwhelmed by the look of their smile. We are dedicated to all areas of oral care, including the care of an important but often overlooked part of smile health; the gums.
Gum recession is a common problem which occurs when the roots of the teeth are exposed because the gum tissue has degraded. Receding gums is a common issue, so you're not alone if you have this problem. There are many lifestyle habits which contribute towards receding gums, including:
- Brushing the teeth too hard
- Flossing too aggressively
- Clenching the jaw
- Grinding the teeth
- Acid from the stomach coming back up to the mouth, which can happen with certain medical conditions
- Trauma to the gum like sticking a fingernail in the gum, which is often more common with children
- Gum infections
- Orthodontic treatment
- Issues with the position of the teeth
