Importance of Treating Periodontal Disease Fishers, IN

receding gums treatment for periodontal disease problems in Indianapolis Carmel and FishersThe leading cause of receding gums is periodontal disease. Periodontal disease occurs when the bacteria that collect on your teeth and gums infect the gum tissue. The infection slowly damages your oral health, attacking the gum tissue and bone that support your teeth.

Symptoms of this bacterial infection include bleeding and swollen gum tissue, bad breath, gum recession, loose teeth, and bone loss. If your gum recession and loose teeth are the result of gum disease, Dr. Pence will first address the source, treating your periodontal infection with effective therapies. He will then correct your gum loss using either gum grafting procedures or gum recession surgery at his Fishers office (just east of Carmel, IN).

When Should I Seek Treatment for Receding Gums?

Gum recession should be treated as soon as possible, as it leaves more of your tooth surface vulnerable to greater amounts of the bacteria that cause damage to oral structures. Recession exposes your tooth roots, leading to sensitive, shifting, or even loose teeth in extreme cases. We can reverse receding gums with gum recession surgery for patients in Indianapolis, Fishers, Carmel, and the surrounding areas of Indiana.
