Receding Gum Treatment

Gum health is important to protect your smile and your overall health. Receding gums are a sign of infection or periodontal disease. When the gum recedes from the tooth, pockets form between the gum tissue and the tooth roots. This is a convenient place for bacteria to hide, creating more plaque and tartar. If you have receding gums, Dr. David Kurtzman can offer dental care treatments to stop the infection and protect your oral health.

Treating receding gums involves stopping the infection attacking the gum tissue and deep cleaning of the teeth. Gums recede when they are irritated, usually due to tartar buildup and infection causing inflammation. Our hygienist can provide deep cleanings of the tooth roots to remove the tartar and provide treatments to fight the infection. Once the teeth are cleared of tartar and bacteria, the gums can heal and be restored to health.

Relief for Bleeding or Swollen Gums

Some of the early signs of gum disease are bleeding, red and swollen gums that begin to recede from the teeth. The gum tissue can be tender, bleeding when you brush your teeth or eat certain foods. However, these early symptoms are minimal compared to the serious threat gum disease can pose to your teeth and overall health. Performing home oral hygiene combined with receding gum treatment at our office can help fight gum infections and prevent further health problems. If you have any of these symptoms, come in for a cleaning and periodontal exam to begin a treatment plan for improved gum health.

Let David Kurtzman, DDS, and our team help you maintain your oral health. If you have receding, bleeding or swollen gums, contact us today to schedule your next appointment for a cleaning and checkup. Most dental insurance plans cover preventive care; we accept many plans at our office and we also have payment options.

Did a fantastic job with my teeth. Would recommend to anyone, unless you're on a budget.

Hannah Jones

Gosh these people are great. I’m extremely phobic and these people not only had me relaxed but had me teeth cleaning ever.

RT Morris-Bodner

Absolutely a great dentist and staff. I've had 2 crowns, implant and fillings and everything is always perfect. Dr. Kurtzman makes you feel comfortable, especially if you're nervous at the dentist, and his work is amazing, no problems at all. Highly recommended, you can feel very confident going here.

Lynne Satterfield

Best dentist I've ever had in my 52 years on earth. Staff is very friendly, always accommodating. Dr Kurtzman takes the time to TALK to you which is rare these days. I have to be put under for dental work and he takes his time to do things properly. I highly recommend!!

Tim Bright

Amazing compassion and attention to client care. I've been injured by two previous dentists in the last 20 + years. Caused quite the dental phobia. Dr. Kurtzman and his staff understood this and went out of their way to years worth the dental work in 4 visits. Can not say enough about what a treasure I have found.

Sherie Wilson

I've been going to Dr. Kurtzman for many, many years and consider he and his staff to be exceptional. When I started going to Dr. K in the early 90's, I lived in Marietta. I now live in Roswell, but would not even consider seeking a dentist closer to my home. His practice is worth the drive. Dr. K uses technology well to communicate making the scheduling and keeping of appointments easy - get appointment reminders via text and confirm them this way as well. Dr. K and his wonderful staff keep up on the latest techniques in dentistry and keep constant vigilance on my comfort while visiting their office. Everyone there has great communication skills and listens effectively.
