Weekly Dental Q&A
What Can I do About My Receding Gum Line? Is this Common?
Yes. It is common.
See your dentist for an evaluation of your gums. There are terrific grafting procedures available to correct these problems. Gum tissue is the only barrier between bacteria and the bones that support your teeth. So you need to have the correct amount of protection.
Is Any Special Care Required For A crowned Tooth?
While a crowned tooth does not require any special care, remember that simply because a tooth is crowned does not mean the underlying tooth is protected from decay or gum disease. Therefore, continue to follow good oral hygiene practices, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing once a day — especially around the crown area where the gum meets the tooth. Antibacterial mouth rinse can also help.
