Many patients with sensitive teeth and receding gums are at risk for losing their teeth in the future. If you are noticing any signs of gum disease, such as inflamed gums, sensitive teeth, or loose teeth in Arkansas, schedule an appointment with Dr. Pierce Osborne, Dr. Michael Curry, and Dr. Wes Shelton as soon as possible. Some of the reasons to seek early treatment include:
- Reduce the risk of teeth falling out
- Eliminate discomfort or pain from inflamed gums
- Reduce the risk of root decay and damage
- Maintain a healthy smile
- Reduce tooth sensitivity
You may need professional treatment to restore your oral health after gum recession. Some gum recession treatment options include:
- Gum grafting procedures
- The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™)
- Periodontal therapy
If you think you may be at risk for losing your teeth or already have receding gums, you must schedule an appointment with one of our doctors as soon as possible. Shifting teeth, receding gums, and sensitive teeth are some of the common symptoms of gum disease and must be treated as soon as they are detected. Leaving the early stages of gum disease untreated can lead to loss of bone and supporting structures of the teeth and eventual tooth loss.
