Ever wonder why you should go to the dentist every 6 months? And why you should have x-rays taken every year? The short answer is prevention from tooth decay. As your dental health team, it’s our role to help you ward off tooth decay by keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
As we get older, we may notice that our gums appear to be receding. Teeth may become more sensitive, develop decay, or even feel a bit loose or less sturdy. Receding gums gradually reveal more of the roots of our teeth so you may notice a darker gum color around the rim. Gum recession can impact the appearance of our smile and often leads to issues surrounding one’s self-confidence.
