Receding / Bleeding / Swollen Gums

Receding Gum Treatment

Schedule Consultation

When plaque and tartar accumulate on the teeth, it can lead to an infection of the gum tissue. If left untreated, the bacteria that cause gum infections can create periodontal disease. Some of the first signs of the early stages of gum or periodontal disease are receding, bleeding or swollen gums. Our dental team at The Dentist Centers offer comprehensive treatments to help stop the progression of this disease and protect your teeth and overall health.

Receding/Bleeding/Swollen Gums

The bacteria that cause gingivitis, the earliest form of gum disease, attack the gum tissue and bone. This bacterial attack and irritation can cause an infection in the tissue. The gums may become inflamed and swollen, and this can lead to bleeding when you brush your teeth or eat crunchy foods. Over time, the gums begin to pull away from the teeth, receding down and away from the roots. If left untreated, bone loss can occur, teeth can become loose and you may be at higher risk for serious health complications.

Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums

At The Dentist Centers, we offer the most advanced options for treating all stages of gum disease. In the early stages, we can use deep cleaning techniques to remove tartar and plaque from the teeth and below the gum line on the roots. Scaling away the tartar and planing the roots can remove the irritants to the gum. These procedures provide a smooth surface to help the gum tissue reattach to the roots of your teeth. If the disease has progressed, we offer advanced methods of removing diseased gum disease and bacteria, including osseous surgery or laser therapy.

Swollen, tender or receding gums are more than a nuisance, as these problems can be signs of gum disease. If you are experiencing these symptoms, schedule an exam at our practice in Sandy Springs or Alpharetta. We can devise a treatment plan to give you relief and stop the progression of the infection to protect your teeth and oral health.

I have been going here for over 9 years. I love the staff. From Dr. Myers to the front office, they are all top notch. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to get back in a room for what ever procedure I am having. I would recommend them to anyone.

Lauree W.

Best dentist ever! Dr. Myers and his staff are amazing. I have had dental challenges in the past and have been judged by other dentists. I never feel judged when I go to the dentist now. Dr. Myers also gives the least painful numbing shots that I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!

Dr meyer abd his staff have been an amazing group for the 13 years I have been there. Today specifically I was in an extreme amount of pain and they made immediate accommodations for me , and all though the procedure was not present they were compassionate , kind , and informative throughout the process. I love these people and all they have done for me!

Thomas J.

Very pleasant experience. Very kind, caring and professional. I had mixed results from my whitening. Looks like some of the bleach stuck better and therefore whitened better. They took some x rays and suggested a crown which I may look into soon. We'll see how the money flow is. But I will definitely look to them for future needs.

Michael S.

I am so glad I went to cosmetic dentistry for my procedure. Dan Myers and staff made me feel comfortable. For me, the procedure was a bit stressful but I knew I was in good hands. I felt like it would never end. Yet Dan Myers never lost patients. I have been to other dentists but there is no other dentist I would rather have treating me.

Murray L.

Dr. Dan and his staff are friendly, professional, and efficient. I rarely spend time in the waiting room. I'm usually greeted by first name as soon as I walk in the door and a dental chair is already waiting for me. No high pressure sales here, just a straight-shooter dentist and a rock star team. Highly recommended.
