Receding Gum Treatment

Have you noticed your gums are receding away from your teeth? This is not just a cosmetic issue; it can be a symptom of gum or periodontal disease. Gum disease can lead to serious dental issues, including tooth loss, but it also can put you at higher risk for strokes, type 2 diabetes and other health problems. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we offer dental treatment for receding, bleeding or swollen gums to give you relief and to protect your oral and overall health.

The reason gums become swollen, recede and bleed easily is usually due to infection and irritation. When tartar accumulates on the teeth, it becomes a protective housing for bacteria. Not only does the tartar irritate the gum tissue, the bacteria can attack the tissue. This causes a reaction, usually red, swollen gums that bleed easily when you brush. To protect itself, the gum tissue recedes away from the tooth and source of irritation, leaving large gaps between the gums and teeth where more bacteria can grow and hide.

Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums

To get relief from infected gums that are bleeding, swollen and receding, deep cleanings are needed to remove all the plaque, tartar and bacteria from the teeth and around the gums. This can be performed by our dental hygienist at Gold Hill Dentistry. For those who are in the early stages of gum disease or have gingivitis, more frequent dental cleanings may be needed to help treat the infection and help restore the gum health. For more advanced levels of gum disease, there are other treatments that can be used to provide deeper cleanings and infection control to provide relief and oral health restoration.

If you have bleeding, swollen or receding gums, it is time to schedule a checkup and cleaning. Contact our team at Gold Hill Dentistry to schedule your next visit to start your treatment plan for receding gums.

The staff at Gold Hill Dentistry is wonderful. They are polite, professional and helpful I have a history of working as both a dental assistant and hygienist in another state.

I highly recommend this dental practice. The staff are gracious, helpful, courteous and accommodating. Dr. Sagunarthy is a wonderful dentist. This is from someone who has always suffered with dental and gum issues. He is current on dental information, kind, gentle and professional! I am so happy to have found this practice!

Richard DeCristo

Dr. Sagunarthy is one of if not the best dentist I ever went to. He recently replaced a crown that was botched by another dentist and the procedure was done perfectly and painlessly. I first went to Gold Hill Dentistry for a second opinion on four crowns and maybe a root canal I needed asap from another dentist in Fort Mill. As it turned out I needed the crown replacement and only one other at a later date. That’s about $6000.00 I saved leaving this OTHER FORT MILL DENTIST. In addition to this wonderful dentist, the total staff is outstanding.

Midge Zimmerman

I have dental anxiety. I dreaded locating a dentist after recently moving to the area. I had gone to another dentist in the area but quickly changed to Gold Hill Denistry. Dr. Sagarnathy and staff are always kind, gentle and concerned with my well being. They also do a really good dental work. Other than routine work, I have had an implant, and chipped tooth repaired, all are doing well.
