Have you noticed that some of your teeth are beginning to look a bit longer than usual? Or maybe you have a couple of teeth that are particularly sensitive to hot or cold foods and beverages? If so, then the problem may be that your gums are receding and some of your teeth’s roots are exposed. Gum grafting in Worcester helps to prevent further gum tissue loss, so you can once again have a smile that is healthy and attractive.

Your smile is made up of more than teeth. When anyone smiles, you see teeth, lips and gum tissue, which all need to be in correct proportion. If you have an uneven smile line or what’s often called a gummy smile, then there is a solution. With crown lengthening, Worcester periodontists Dr. Handsman and Dr. Haddad can enhance the appearance of your smile. Crown lengthening is the name of a surgical procedure our periodontists use to remove or reposition gum tissue.

Gum disease at any stage is a significant threat to your oral health. And because this bacterial infection has been linked to systemic diseases and illness including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis, it can also negatively impact your general health, too. Because the symptoms of gum disease can damage both your oral and general health, early detection is important. At Handsman & Haddad Periodontics, your gum specialist in Worcester, MA, we look for the early warning signs in order to stop the progression. Then, with gum disease treatment, we help our patients manage the condition.
