The question if the receding gums can grow back after a proper dental treatment
will be the basis of this text. Receding gums is a visible and embarrassing
problem and it associated with the lower lined gum line attachment. This leads
to the attachment of the tooth on the roof or near the roof. The tooth will
be exposed and the yellowish tooth will be a very unpleasant sight. One of the
potential causes according to some of theories is the loss of gum tissue, but this is not true since the gum tissue only lowers and it is not lost. Some
habits, such as tobacco chewing, poor oral hygiene and vigorous brushing are
some of the possible causes of this problem. But if they recede or not is something
most of the people with receding gums are wondering. We will see if
this is true in the following text.
Do They Grow Back?
The fact remains that the loss of gums is not associated with the actual loss since the gums cannot be lost and they remain in the oral cavity, regardless of the vigorous brushing. They are supposed to be in a certain level, but due to the receding gums, they found themselves in lower position than normal. But since the gums cannot grow back into a tooth, the question is if the receding gums can actually grow back. The actual problem is weather the gums can be brought in the normal position. The receding gums can be treated in several ways. The cause of the problem will determine the treatment. Brushing properly is crucial if the problem is caused by the constant abrasion. Root planning and teeth cleaning are advised to those who are having a problem because of the poor oral hygiene. The gum tissue attachment is prevented by the calculus and the plaque and they are eliminated by root planning and teeth cleaning. Deep gum cleaning is need for the calculus and subgingival plaque and this procedure is done under a local anesthesia. Gingival graft is an option for severe cases of receding gums, which involves taking a gum tissue piece and putting it in the receding area of the gums. This will eventually lead to the covering of the receding area. Be careful if you are having receding gums problem. This is a common problem that even targets younger population, which is disturbing. This is caused by the lifestyle of these generation and their chewing tobacco and smoking habits. There are serious problems, such as irreversible recession of the gingival tissue, if the problem is not treated accordingly.
