Receding Gum Treatment
Receding Gum Treatment
Your gums are the foundation of your smile. When they are damaged, diseased or receding, it is important to seek treatment sooner rather than later. Receding gums occur when the gums shrink down and expose the tooth root. This problem can make your teeth look longer and lead to disruptive sensitivity within your smile. Most importantly, it could be a warning sign that your gums are infected or diseased and professional intervention is critical. At West Hill Family Dental, we are equipped to treat your receding gums with the precision and care you deserve.
While receding gums can be a result of the natural aging process or brushing too hard, recession can also occur when the gums are infected. Therefore, we take the time to properly diagnose your receding gums. Our professionals will implement a treatment plan that restores your gums to a healthy condition and proper height. Dr. Hemphill is qualified to offer a wide range of periodontal treatments, ranging from scaling and root planing for gum disease to gum grafting for receding gums. By addressing your gums, we are also protecting the stability of your teeth and the health of your overall smile.
Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums
If you suffer from gums that bleed easily, feel tender or look puffy, you may be experiencing the initial signs of gum disease. Bleeding and swollen gums are primary symptoms of gingivitis. Gingivitis occurs when the gums become inflamed and irritated due to the buildup of plaque and bacteria along the gum line. If left alone, gingivitis can progress into a worsening infection that causes your gums to pull away from the tooth root. It may eventually result in the destruction of the underlying bone and tissue. If your gum disease is caught and treated early, it becomes much easier to restore your gum health. Many patients can reverse bleeding and swollen gums by practicing better oral hygiene or undergoing a deep cleaning at our Rocky Hill office.
Contact our office today to schedule your appointment, and get relief from your bleeding, swollen or receding gums. When it comes to taking care of your smile, we combine the best of modern dentistry with a gentle, patient-centered approach.
What Our Patients Say
West Hill Family Dental has been serving my entire family for 10 years. They have always been great and treat us like family. I will continue to use them because of the high level of care and comfortable atmosphere.
Today was my first visit with West Hill Family dental. The staff was awesome! So warm and welcoming! I felt at home the moment I walked in the door. Melissa (hygienist) was awesome and very sweet. Dr. Hemphill was very personable. I am a nervous Nelly with the dentist but they really helped me feel comfortable.
"Going to the Dentist," isn't something most folks look forward to. Fortunately, the Team at West Hill Family Dental makes that experience an enjoyable event with a friendly, thoughtful and genuinely concerned approach to both routine care and one-off emergencies. The atmosphere is relaxed and positive; everything from scheduling to changes is accommodated with little fuss and a genuine enthusiasm to see you at the next opportunity. And the overall quality of care, execution and attention to customer needs are unmatched by most practices, and certainly by the cookie-cutter pop-ups that abound elsewhere. Highly recommended, family-oriented and very professional in every aspect of care and delivery - they're definitely on the list of recommendations to new residents and neighbors!
In the past I have had bad experiences with dentist and I have switch many times and I think I have finally found my forever home. Kim and Monica at the front desk are amazing they make sure that if you have any concerns, they will accommodate you in any way they can. They also socialize with you which makes visiting the dentist feel like visiting family. This is by far the best dentist I've ever been to and would recommend them to anyone.
