Preventing Receding Gums - Aliso Viejo, CA

Understanding the causes of gum recession and the impact it can have on the oral environment in an important first step in preventing receding gums. When periodontal disease is the culprit, Dr. Cho can make a recommendation for the appropriate periodontitis treatment and receding gums surgery. Some of the best ways to prevent receding gums include:

Using the proper brushing technique
Applying too much pressure when brushing or using the wrong type of toothbrush can damage the gums permanently.
Avoiding grinding and clenching the teeth
Bruxism can damage the gums as well as the teeth, so taking steps to break habits of grinding and clenching can help preserve your oral health.
Seeking treatment for misalignment
A misaligned bite or crooked teeth can cause damage to the gums, as these conditions place pressure on muscle attachments that can tug the gum tissues to a receded level over time.
Breaking habits that irritate the gums
Breaking a tobacco habit or the habit of chewing hard objects can lower your risk of gum recession.
Wearing a nightguard
Protecting your teeth and gums while you sleep by reducing pressure on the jaw will help you maintain optimal oral health.

While we are able to effectively treat receded gums tissues, prevention is always best. For more information about periodontitis treatment and ways to prevent gum recession in Aliso Viejo, CA, schedule your appointment with Dr. Cho today!
