Reclaim Your Smile: Preventing Gum Recession

by | 9/06/2023 | News

Maintaining a healthy smile goes beyond simply brushing and flossing your teeth. When it comes to gum health, prevention is key to preserving the foundation of your oral well-being.

What is Gum Recession?

Gum recession is an often-unnoticed condition until it reaches an advanced stage.

It occurs when the gum tissue gradually pulls back, exposing the roots of the teeth.

This can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor oral hygiene, gum disease, aggressive brushing, and even genetic predisposition.

The consequences of unnoticed gum recession extend beyond the aesthetics of your smile. Exposed tooth roots can become sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, increase the risk of tooth decay, and compromise the stability of the affected teeth.

While there are ways to actively combat gum recession, why wait until it becomes a pressing concern?

In this blog you’ll learn how you can practice good oral health, to prevent the condition from wreaking havoc on your smile:


1. Gentle Brushing

Bid farewell to vigorous scrubbing! Invest in a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush your teeth with a gentle touch. Remember, finesse over force.


2. Flossing Mastery

Develop a habit of daily flossing to eliminate plaque and debris residing between the teeth and along the gumline. Seek guidance from Esthetique Dental’s expert team to ensure your flossing technique is effective.


3. Regular Dental Visits

Arm yourself with knowledge! Arrange regular visits to have your oral health assessed and to receive professional guidance on maintaining healthy gums.
