Stop Receding Gums in Arkansas

If you are concerned about gum recession or are experiencing some of the side effects of other oral health issues, our doctors can make a recommendation for treatment that will restore your oral health and your smile.

Some tips to prevent gum recession:

  • Use the right tooth brushing technique. Applying too much pressure or using the wrong type of toothbrush can damage the gums permanently.
  • Avoid clenching and grinding the teeth. Bruxism can damage the gums permanently, so breaking habits that wear down the gums can preserve your oral health.
  • Seek treatment for bite misalignment. Crooked teeth or a misaligned bite can put pressure on some parts of the mouth and cause damage to the tissues.
  • Refrain from using tobacco products. Smoking and chewing tobacco can negatively impact the gum tissue and increase the risk of gum recession.
  • Wear a nightguard. You can protect your gums and teeth while sleeping by wearing a nightguard.
