If you’re interested in protecting your oral health, you probably know that there are a few things you should do. For example, you may have heard that brushing and flossing are important. We also recommend visiting our team once every six months for a routine visit. Furthermore, please feel free to contact us if you notice signs of a dental issue—including signs of gum recession.

If you see brown spots on your gum line, if your teeth seem longer, or if you have red or swollen gums, you may have gum recession. Unfortunately, this issue could be caused by a number of problems. If you brush too hard or grind your teeth, you could be suffering from gum recession. If your problem is caused by brushing, you could brush softer and could consider buying a brush with softer bristles. If you grind your teeth, you may make strange noises when you sleep, experience regular headaches, or have a sore jaw. If you think you could have TMJ disorder, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Naturally, it’s also important that you brush and floss your pearly whites regularly if you’re interested in avoiding gum recession. If you’re interested in scheduling an appointment with us, please don’t hesitate to give Precision Periodontics & Dental Implants at our office in Ocoee, Florida a call at 407-378-0877. Our periodontist, Dr. Ryan Mendro, and our team will gladly address any questions you have. We’re eager to meet with you soon.
