Cosmetic Dentistry in Scottsdale, AZ Can Help with Receding Gums
Receding gums is a common problem with many and the problem may not be as visible until the damage is already done. The reason why gums recede is due to gum disease, where the teeth start to appear longer or the gums pull away from the teeth. While this is typically treatable, it can lead to tooth loss and the need for Cosmetic Dentistry in Scottsdale, AZ.
If your gums have gotten to the point where there is no way to fix the problem through surgery or other means, implants or dentures may be the route to take to have a healthy, attractive smile. Of course no one wants to lose their teeth but sometimes this is the better choice if the situation has gotten to the point of being unhealthy since gum disease is linked to other issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer.
Dr. Steven Poulos and Dr. Sid Stevens at My Scottsdale Dentist can evaluate your needs and help you not only look better but feel better as well. Since gum disease can cause other health issues, implants or dentures may be the right choice for your situation.
Another thing to keep in mind is that dentures or implants are not the end-all to your youth. In fact, since the doctors at My Scottsdale Dentist can make your implants or dentures look natural and beautiful, no one even has to know.
