LOS ANGELES, March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Gingival recession, also known as receding gums, is a common condition that many individuals don't recognize until uncomfortable symptoms begin developing. Most common in adults over the age of 40, receding gums are the result of any combination of factors, including overly-aggressive teeth brushing, periodontal disease, gingivitis, tooth crowding, use of dipping tobacco, genetically thin gums, poor dental hygiene and much more. Since the development of gum recession typically occurs subtly and gradually over years, most individuals who have it don't find out until it has significantly progressed. At Brentwood Dental Clinic, Dr. Haroun Rostami D.D.S. provides patients who have severe gum recession with soft gum treatments that relieve uncomfortable tooth sensitivity and restore normal gum appearance.
In many cases of gum recession, a change of behavioral habits can aid in relieving some of the symptoms. This may include using a softer toothbrush, brushing and flossing more regularly, or using milder toothpaste. When these methods aren't effective, Dr. Rostami performs a soft tissue graft, in which small pieces of tissue from the roof of the mouth are integrated into the areas of the gums that are receding. This serves to restore a barrier against the teeth to prevent hyper-tooth sensitivity near the root and to give the teeth a more normal sized appearance. Gum grafting requires a unique mixture of aesthetic adeptness as well as extensive experience performing the procedure. Dr. Rostami is recognized as one of the best cosmetic dentists in Los Angeles due to the precision, skill, and care he takes in each patient's treatment.
As a premier prosthodontist in Los Angeles, Dr. Rostami is the dental specialist of choice for individuals seeking everything from teeth whitening treatments to full mouth reconstruction. All patients are given an individualized treatment approach that takes individual dental history, treatment needs, and innate dental features into consideration. As with soft tissue grafts, all of Dr. Rostami's treatments leave no room for error or complication.
