Receding Gum Treatment

When more of your tooth surface is showing than usual and the condition persists, you may be suffering from receding gums. It is important to contact Dentists on the Square for comprehensive general dentistry to determine the cause of the issue, as receding gums are often an indication of a serious oral health condition. In some cases, the pulp and nerves of the teeth are exposed, which could lead to infection and the loss of teeth.

Gum disease is one of the most common causes of receding gums that we encounter at Dentists on the Square. There are a number of other possible reasons that gums may recede. Infections can also occur due to poor hygiene or food becoming trapped in hard to reach areas in the teeth or gums. The only way to determine what is going on in your mouth is through a comprehensive exam carried out at our Philadelphia office.

Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums

Dentists on the Square can provide relief from bleeding or swollen gums. It is important to seek treatment from your dentist as soon as possible if you notice gum abnormalities. Infections and other oral health complications that lead to bleeding or swollen gums are normally progressive. If you do not receive treatment from an experienced dental team, you are running the risk of tooth decay developing.

Tooth loss is not unusual as the result of oral health issues that include symptoms such as bleeding or swollen gums. Only an expert dentist can provide you with effective treatment that will reverse the effects of gum disease and similar conditions.

When your gums look or feel different, seek expert consultation from Dentists on the Square. We are here to ensure that you maintain exceptional oral health. Contact us today to book a comprehensive exam in Philadelphia.

    Dentists on the Square is great. I’ve had a lot of work done, and they are by far the best practice I’ve been to. They are preventative in mindset, which makes a huge difference to minimize issues before they are large scale problems. The team collaborates and they are very attentive. And now I walk out after a cleaning with much whiter teeth! My hygienist is amazing!

    DOTS is fantastic! I’ve been a long time patient and have referred many friends. Their staff and doctors are attentive, caring and always willing to sit down and plan out treatment and talk through your benefits. Thank you!

    They actually have me excited to get implants. The staff is amazing and extremely kind. Very thorough and comprehensible, even with such a detailed process. Thank you!! I’m very happy to have been recommended to come here.

  • Candace V.

    I highly recommend! The staff is really friendly and nice. I had my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Roberts and Vince and they are great. I was really nervous to have that type of treatment but they reassured me that I would be okay and made it a good experience. It is so worth it!

  • Angela B.

    My first appointment at DOTS was pretty incredible. I had a traumatic experience at my last dentist three years ago that resulted in my 1) developing severe anxiety around going to the dentist and 2) me putting off my dental health for a while. Everyone at DOTS was incredible and super supportive. Shoutout to the hygienist and dentists there that get their patients through the appointments with humor and professionalism. I think I might actually look forward to the dentist now!

  • Jake P.
