Why Do I Have Receding Gums?

Receding gums in Oakbrook Terrace, IL can occur so gradually that many people might not be aware that they have gingival recession until they start to feel the negative effects of the condition. If you develop sensitive teeth or notice an uneven gum line, you could have receding gums. Dr. Amarik Singh offers several periodontal procedures to treat receding gums in our Oakbrook Terrace, IL office.

Causes of Gum Recession

It is important to seek treatment for receding gums. Without the protective barrier of our gums surrounding our teeth, we can leave them exposed to bacteria that will only build-up and cause further disease and infection. Without the gums covering the roots of our teeth, they are exposed to external stimuli and become very sensitive and prone to decay.

Receding Gums Treatment

Dr. Singh provides receding gums treatment in the form of gum grafts. He is also trained and certified to perform a new procedure called the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. Gum grafting is more of a traditional method of gum recession surgery. With gum grafting, Dr. Singh will take soft tissue from a donor site in your mouth and graft the donor tissue over the area of recession. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ in Chicago, IL has been deemed a “breakthrough” in gum recession surgery and is minimally invasive. This procedure does not require any incisions, stitches, or a second surgical site. Bleeding is minimal and recovery time is quick. Most patients can return to their normal activities the very same day.
