Importance of Treating Periodontal Disease Fishers, INreceding gums treatment for periodontal disease problems in Indianapolis Carmel and Fishers

The 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. Behner 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 the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) at his Fishers office (just east of Carmel, IN).

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.

Early treatment of gum recession is crucial to preserve the appearance and function of your smile. o learn more about the importance of treating gum recession in Fishers, IN, or to get treatment for periodontal disease, contact Dr. Behner today.
