Gum recession is a condition in which the ridge of your gum tissue begins to pull back toward the tooth roots. This has many negative potential consequences, from the functional to the aesthetic. Gum recession can leave a large portion of your tooth roots exposed, causing you to experience temperature sensitivity when eating and drinking. It can make your gumline appear lopsided, transforming what may otherwise be a healthy smile into one that makes you feel self-conscious. Worse yet, if you leave the condition untreated, it can lead to gum disease, tooth loss, and jawbone loss. The good news is that multiple options exist to treat your gum disease, and some are minimally invasive! Our specialized periodontal team is here to help you avoid the risks of gum recession in Chicago, IL with personalized and comfortable treatment.
