Receding Gum Treatment

When the gum tissue around the teeth becomes irritated or infected, it may recede away from the teeth. This can create large pockets around the roots of the teeth that can be a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. If you have receding or swollen gums, it can be a sign of gingivitis or gum disease. At Majestic Smile Studio, we provide receding gum treatment at our dental center in Yorba Linda, CA.

The mouth always has bacteria, good and bad, that feed on food left on the teeth. The by-product of the bacteria is plaque, the film that covers the teeth. If plaque is not removed with brushing regularly, it can harden into tartar that cannot be removed without professional dental tools. Tartar can house more bacteria and irritate the gums, causing them to swell and recede away from the teeth. This infection of the gums can also cause other symptoms of gingivitis or periodontal disease, including:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Bad breath

Infection of the gums can progress into periodontitis, which can result in bone and tooth loss. The infection can also increase the risk of other health conditions. Treatment when you begin having symptoms of receding, swollen or bleeding gums can help prevent further progression of the disease.

Relief for Swollen or Bleeding Gums

Treatment for infected gums includes removing tartar with thorough dental cleaning. Our hygienist and dentist work together to create a plan to stop the infection. In the early stages of gingivitis, the infection and damage to the gums can be reversed with treatment and ongoing oral hygiene. Deep dental cleanings on a more frequent basis combined with improved daily oral hygiene can provide relief for receding, bleeding and swollen gums. For extremely infected gums, special mouthwash or other medications may be prescribed.

If you have noticed that your gums are pulling away from your teeth or your gums bleed when you brush, come see us at Majestic Smile Studio. Contact our dental center in the Anaheim and Yorba Linda, CA, area to schedule a checkup and cleaning to protect your oral health.

The best dentist I've ever been to, this place is awesome ! As everyone knows, going to a dental office typically isn't a celebratory and pleasant event! However, my experience here changed my outlook on dentistry for the better. Nicole the office manager was very kind and set the appointment for me even though I had to be back to my office by 9 AM and I needed to have an appointment closer to 7 AM, she moved things around and accommodate me and promised I won’t be late to work. Veronica(who administered the X-rays and assisted Dr. Gutierrez) was thorough, kind, and very knowledgeable, which was a great start. Then Dr. Gutierrez came in to conduct the examination and assess what work needed to be performed. The sincerity she exhibited for my well being was admirable and her exceptional skill became immediately evident. I've been to several of the top dentists in Southern California, and this was by far the most impressive experience. Their price point was reasonable, the building was quite nice, and the level of care is top notch. In addition, the hygienist Stephanie was fantastic. She approached your cleaning with the perfect balance of gentleness and rigorousness. The photo studio for before and after pictures was very useful for me to see the huge difference. If you need a new dentist, this is the place. They've gained a lifelong patient in me! I hate going to the dentist. Not because I'm scared, but because I despise mouth and dental related pains. I don’t have high tolerance for pain, dental pain for whatever reason is 10 times more, but I did full sets of veneers and didn’t feel any pain! I highly recommend Majestic Smile Studio and Dr. Gutierrez and her team.
