The Real Reason Your Teeth Look Longer

Schedule Consultation

Have you ever heard the term “long in the tooth?” Teeth do not really get longer, of course. They just look that way because of gum recession.

Receding gums are a common problem for many Americans and can be caused by a variety of factors:

  • Progressive periodontal disease
  • Improper brushing techniques
  • Predisposition toward gum recession because of heredity
  • Thin gum tissues
  • Smoking and other tobacco use
Innovative Treatment for Gum Recession How to Prevent Further Problems With Receding Gums Find out more by calling us at 702-984-2577 to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Curry Leavitt.

Years ago, there was little that could be done for gum recession aside from either preventing it or keeping it from getting worse. Now gum grafting allows us to help patients revitalize the look and function of their gums.

During gum grafting surgery, known as the tunnel technique, Dr. Leavitt takes gum tissue from the adjacent gums and grafts it to the place where the gums have receded.

This type of gum grafting surgery is minimally invasive and provides excellent results. After gum grafting via the tunnel technique, you will need to adhere to instructions to keep the area clean to maintain proper healing.

If you have had receding gums and want to avoid this issue in the future, follow these guidelines:

  • Get help for your gum disease. Regular periodontal maintenance deep cleanings will minimize the likelihood of the spread of gum disease.
  • Brush your teeth correctly and with the right type of toothbrush. If you have never had a primer on how to brush your teeth, just ask the next time you come for a visit! You might be surprised to learn that you have been doing it improperly.
  • Stop smoking and using smokeless tobacco. Are you looking for a good reason to stop smoking? Reducing the risk of future gum recession is a great one.
