Welcome to Bedrock Laser Periodontics & Implants, where we provide exceptional care and treatments for gum recession in North Austin, TX. Our esteemed periodontist, Dr. Nambisan, has extensive experience in treating a wide range of periodontal issues, including gum recession.

What is Gum Recession?

Gum recession is a progressive condition that causes the loss of gum tissue over time. The condition is commonly caused by poor oral hygiene habits or periodontal disease. In some cases, gum recession can begin much sooner than age 40. If left untreated, gum recession can cause teeth roots to become exposed, leading to serious oral health problems.

Symptoms of Gum Recession

Some of the common symptoms that may be found with gum recession include teeth sensitivity, visible teeth roots, teeth appearing longer, and inflamed or bleeding gums. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to consult with a periodontist immediately.

Treatment Options for Gum Recession

At Bedrock Laser Periodontics & Implants, we offer a range of treatment options for gum recession. The type of treatment recommended will depend on the cause and severity of your condition. Our periodontist, Dr. Nambisan, will conduct a thorough examination and discuss your treatment options with you.

Oral Hygiene Education

In some cases, poor oral hygiene habits may be the cause of gum recession. Our team will provide you with oral hygiene education to help improve your brushing and flossing techniques.

Professional Teeth Cleaning

Regular teeth cleaning is essential to maintaining good oral health. Our dental hygienists will remove plaque and tartar buildup that may contribute to gum recession.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical treatment that involves removing plaque and tartar buildup from below the gum line. This treatment helps to promote healthy gum tissue growth and prevent further gum recession.

Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is a surgical treatment that involves taking tissue from another part of your mouth and grafting it onto the affected area. This treatment is used to cover exposed tooth roots and improve the appearance of your gums.

Gum Tissue Regeneration

Gum tissue regeneration is a surgical treatment that involves using regenerative materials to stimulate the growth of new gum tissue. This treatment is used to restore damaged gum tissue and prevent further gum recession.
