When gums move away from the teeth, recession occurs, like this before and after. Symptoms such as sensitivity, and food getting stuck can happen. Thankfully, Prairie Dental Care knows just how to fix this.
Causes For Gum Recession
Aggressive brushing and scrubbing motion over the years can cause severe wearing of teeth near the gumline. This is called abrasion and can result in weakening of the tooth structure and sensitivity. The lost tooth structure can be restored with resin bonding, known as tooth colored fillings, usually without needing anesthetic. The final result can be very esthetic and helps protect the tooth from further wear and damage.
