Can Receding Gums Grow Back?

Posted on 1/23/2023 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
Can Receding Gums Grow Back?Do your teeth seem longer than they used to be? Are your gums red or swollen? You may be suffering from gum disease if any of these questions are ones that you have wondered about before. In its early stages, it can be reversed. But, once it has escalated, gum recession can cause a person to wonder if it is possible for their gums to grow back on their own.

The Cause of Receding Gums

The soft tissues that surround your teeth safeguard the most susceptible elements of your tooth structure. Receding gums can cause more significant dental issues like infection and discomfort. What caused these tissues to recede in the first place? Facial trauma, bruxism, frequent hard brushing, improper alignment, smoking, and gum disease are the most prevalent causes of gum recession.

Can Gums Grow Back?

If you ask a periodontist if gums can regrow after receding, they will tell you that they cannot. Unfortunately, no matter how lovely it might be, these soft tissues will not rearrange themselves following therapy. To rebuild the structure of your teeth, you and your periodontist will need to create a plan that includes surgically inserting new tissue over weak spots. Gum grafting is commonly utilized to do this. Small bits of tissue are taken from the roof of your mouth and connected to your gingiva to accomplish this. You will be able to cover up the visible teeth with excellent success if you use this procedure.

When you suffer from significant bone loss, you may need a bone graft and surgery to reduce gum pockets that can cause infections by trapping bacteria. Besides gum recession, periodontal diseases also cause tooth loss. We can help you ensure the health and longevity of your smile by getting in touch with us today. Treat gum recession and gum disease by speaking to our periodontist.
