Are You Experiencing Common Signs of Gum Recession?
Many times, people with receding gums do not even realize they have a problem until their gum recession has progressed to a more serious level. However, most individuals will have some kind of symptom related to the receding of their gums tissues.
Some of the more typical signs of gum recession include:
- A feeling of pain whenever hot or cold drinks are in the mouth, but only at the site where the gums have receded
- Teeth that seem to be getting “longer” because the gums appear to be shrinking
- A noticeable color difference on the portions of the teeth near the gum line or the presence of a greater amount of surface stain in these areas
- A notch or dent on the tooth surface near the gum line, delineating the transition between the enamel and root portion of the tooth
Any of these dental issues needs to be examined by Dr. Paul Snisky and Dr. Stephen Stein to determine what is causing the problem. We have the necessary experience in treating patients with receding gums in Scarsdale, NY and the surrounding areas. Please contact our office for an appointment right away.
