My Gums Have Started To Recede, What Can I Do About This?

Monday, July 1st, 2013
Q.

Hi, I was just wondering if there is any new treatment or some sort of treatment that can be used to cover my teeth when the gums have receded? Some of my gum has receded quite badly and i was wondering if there was any cosmetic treatment that could be used on teeth so as not to expose so much of the teeth which have already become sensitive? I don’t know where to start looking and I don’t even know if this type of treatment even exists so I would very much appreciate your advice. If you know how you could point me in the right direction that would be great. I don’t even know if this is a dental matter? With it being my gums? Is there some sort of specialist I will have to visit instead? Thank you in advance.

I Am 22 And Suffering From Periodontal Disease, Please Help!

Thursday, June 27th, 2013
Q.

Hi, i have periodontitis , i have lost 5 teeth and will soon be losing a few more. I wondered if you could advise me on something please? I am 22 years old and therefore (obviously) very young and would like some advice and how to move forward. I have very little amount of gum and hardly any bone left in the areas where the teeth were taken out from. My dentist has not been very reassuring so i would like to know what i can do to save my remaining teeth and i would like to know of any procedures that are available in my situation. I am currently wearing dentures and have been for the last two years but would like something permanent.I don’t even know how I got into this predicament but it’s really getting me down. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thank you!

My Gums Have Receded Badly Due To Periodontal Disease, Is There Anything That Can Help Them Grow Back?

Monday, June 24th, 2013
Q.

Hi

I have some receding gums at the back of my mouth due to periodontitis.

Do you know of anyone using stem cells to regenerate gums as I have heard trials are taking place already to help grow back the gum area? I am desperate to receive some sort of treatment before they start looking really bad. My teeth have already begun feeling very sensitive and my gums are constantly bleeding. It’s very worrying and I’m trying to get the disease under control. I was wondering if you know of any other treatments to help with gums as I have black marks on mine which is due to probably smoking but I would like to know if they can ever go back to pink again? Anything at all? Thanks in advance.

Can I Get Veneers If I Have Periodontitis?

Friday, June 7th, 2013
Q.

I suffer from Periodontitis, and I was wondering if I would be able to opt for veneers. Can I ask you for some advice please on my best options? I have now got to the stage where I hold my hand over my mouth when I smile. It’s destroyed my confidence and also the dentist has obviously told me about the health risks etc which is only getting me more stressed out about it.

As A 60 Year Old, Is Gum Recession Something I Must Live With?

Thursday, May 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi
I have had recently some gum problems
I am coming up to 60 years old next birthday and although i do not have any problems with my teeth i do have some gum shrinking at the bottom front part of my mouth,
is this a common problem or is there something i could have done as although it does not cause me any pain it is quite a uncomfortable feeling in my mouth?

I have had cleaning work done on my teeth but no gum work done as yet. I have read a little about gum recession and shrinking but obviously directly asking an expert like yourself would prove more beneficial.

I Am A Nervous Patient And Have Severe Gum Disease, Can You Help Me?

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013
Q.

Hi I suffer with severe gum disease and I have lost almost all my gum surrounding my 2 bottom teeth. I am also a very nervous patient and havent been to my dentist for 2 yrs as he doesnt understand. He has also said nothing can be done about my gums but ive heard of a procedure where u remove good gum and put it on the affected area. Ive been looking but cannot find a dentist where I live that deals with peridontal disease. Im really desperate as I dont want my teeth to fall out. When ive been to the dentist in the past ive been made to feel like I dont brush my teeth but they r brushed twice sometimes 3 times a day, I did used to smoke. Ive been suffering with this since I was 15 and im now 30.
I would b really grateful for some advice and guidance.
Thanks.
