Gum receding in children, do they grow back to normal over time?

Gum receding in children, do they grow back to normal over time?

See a dentist: Gum recession is the process in which the margin of the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth wears away, or pulls back, exposing more of the tooth, or the tooth's root. Receding gums may be one of the first signs of gum disease. Gum recession is not something you want to ignore. If you think your child's gums are receding, make an appointment with your dentist.

Will receding gums grow back with proper oral care!?

Will receding gums grow back with proper oral care!?

No: Gum tissue does not regenerate, so when it is lost, it is important for patients to control the reason for initial recession (whether it be poor oral health care, bruxism, etc.) and then speak to a periodontist about corrective soft tissue surgery to rebuild the tissue in the area and protect the roots of the natural teeth.

Lost gum?: Some do and some don't. It really depends upon where you lost the gum tissue and how the injury is handled. It's best to see your dentist or a periodontist right away for a one on one clinical examination and consultation. Better to be safe than sorry.

Thoughts? Could my receding gums grow back if I start brushing regularly?

Thoughts? Could my receding gums grow back if I start brushing regularly?

No, but: Good oral hygiene is only 1/2 the battle. You need to see your dentist to determine the cause of your recession. Is it from periodontal (gum) disease, over vigorous or incorrect brushing technique, from stress by clenching or grinding your teeth, genetic predisposition, prior difficult orthodontic treatment, poor occlusion (the way our teeth meet)? All of this needs to be evaluated by a dentist.

Does injured gum from gingivitis grow back?

Does injured gum from gingivitis grow back?

Gum damage: Mild changes like swollen, puffy, inflamed, red, bleeding and slightly receded gums usually can recover 100% with proper dental care and oral hygiene. The longer it goes on and the greater the changes, the less likely to recover. Gingivitis is the early stage of periodontal (gum) disease and usually easy to treat. Periodontitis is more difficult to treat and may result in permanent damage.

Unfortunately No: There is no magic way to get your receding gums and underlying bone to grow back. Please seek the advice of a local periodontist to determine the best way to quell your sensitivity: medicaments, laser treatment, or gum grafting. All the best.

Abcessed tooth: See your dentist. You may have a dead infected tooth. If this happens it can form a pimple above the tooth. A sinus track can form from the tooth infection and drain out into the mouth through the gum or mucosa.

My gum on my upper first molar got detached from injury by a brutal dental assistant when taking impression. Will it grow back & reattach to the tooth?

Gum injury: Yes, please consult your dentists to make sure the teeth and nerves are ok. Nature will help that tissue to grow back but we need to create the best conditions for that to happen. Peace and good health.
