Understanding the Causes of Gum Recession
Gum recession is one of the most common side effects of periodontal disease. It can also occur from using the wrong type of toothbrush, brushing too hard, or if the gums have torn or become weak due to certain medications. If you have lost a significant amount of gum tissue, schedule an appointment with Dr. Gregg Codelli to learn more about the latest techniques to treat receding gums in Atlanta, GA.
Non-Surgical Approach to Treating Receding Gums
Gum contouring and reshaping surgery is often recommended as a gum recession treatment, but undergoing surgery is no longer the only option. Many patients can benefit from the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, an innovative technique that involves using specialized tools to gently pull existing gum tissue either up or down over the areas with gum recession. The gums reattach to the teeth in their new position fairly quickly and results are almost immediate.
