Gum health is a critical component of your overall oral health. At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we understand the discomfort and concerns that come with receding, bleeding, or swollen gums. Our dedicated team is here to provide effective treatment options and relief for these common gum issues.

Understanding Gum Problems

  • Receding Gums: This condition, where the gum tissue pulls back from the teeth, can expose the roots, leading to sensitivity and increased risk of tooth decay.
  • Bleeding and Swollen Gums: Often signs of gingivitis, the initial stage of gum disease, bleeding, and swollen gums can progress to more severe conditions if not treated promptly.

Causes of Gum Issues

Several factors can contribute to these gum problems, including:

  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Aggressive brushing or flossing
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Smoking or use of tobacco products
  • Hormonal changes, particularly in women
  • Certain medications

Our Approach to Treating Gum Issues

At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we offer personalized treatment plans based on the specific needs and conditions of our patients:

  • Deep Cleaning: A non-invasive procedure that involves scaling and root planing to remove plaque and tartar build-up below the gum line.
  • Gum Graft Surgery: For cases of severe gum recession, we may recommend gum grafts to cover exposed roots and restore gum health.
  • Laser Therapy: Utilizing advanced laser technology, we can treat bleeding and swollen gums with minimal discomfort and a quicker recovery time.

Preventing Gum Recession

Prevention is key when it comes to maintaining healthy gums. We provide comprehensive guidance on oral hygiene practices, including proper brushing and flossing techniques. Regular dental checkups and cleanings are essential to prevent and monitor these conditions.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
