Gum recession: why should you care?

The function of gum tissue is to cover and protect the roots of your teeth and underlying jaw bone that anchors them in place. When gums recede, the bone and other tissues that support your tooth’s root are also lost. This can compromise your appearance and confidence. The resulting root sensitivity may also make eating and drinking unpleasant or even painful.

Receding gums expose the tooth root and compromise the attachment of the tooth to the jaw bone.

1. Before treatment 5 mm recession defect.
2. 8 months after treatment with Straumann® Emdogain® Root completely covered.

It is important to identify and treat recession early. Left unchecked, recession could worsen to a point where the root becomes unprotected and teeth may be compromised and lost.
