Gum Diseases And Treatment
In Turkey

What Is Gingival Recession?
Gingival recession is defined as an apical shift of the gingival margin, causing exposure of the root surface of a tooth.

What Can Gingival Recession Cause?
Gingival recession is a common problem. It occurs over a long period. The first sign of gum recession is tooth sensitivity. 


This is due to the fact that the root surface is exposed and becomes visible. When left untreated, the supporting tissues of the teeth and bone can be severely damaged. As a result, tooth loss occurs. 

What Are The Reasons
For The Gingival Recession?

One of the biggest causes of gum disease is the accumulation of plaque below the gum line. Gum disease is the main cause of gum recession. Trauma or aggressive and incorrect brushing methods, orthodontic treatment, lip or tongue piercing, smoking, and hormonal changes are the causes of gum recession. Teeth Grinding and Clenching can also cause gum recession.

No matter the cause of your gum recession, timely diagnosis and treatment at Ekiz Clinic can help prevent long-term oral health problems. 

Types of Gum Disease

Two types of diseases can affect the gums: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease. It is characterized by bad breath/halitosis, red, swollen, gums, and bleeding gums when brushing or flossing. According to the Ekiz Clinic, gingivitis is primarily caused by poor oral hygiene, which allows plaque to build up on teeth, which is why it is important to brush and floss every day to remove it.

If gingivitis is left untreated, it turns into a much more serious disease, periodontitis. When too much plaque spreads below the gum line the supporting tissues of the tooth can break down. As a result of periodontitis; loss of teeth, decrease in bone mass, and gaps between teeth occur.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Is The Gum Recession Diagnosed in Turkey?

The specialist dentist at Ekiz Clinic can diagnose gum recession with a clinical examination. With a special instrument called a periodontal sond, your gum pocket is measured by the periodontal specialist at Ekiz Clinic. A healthy gum pocket is between 1 -3 mm. In gingivitis, the pockets are deeper than 4 mm. 

What Are Surgical Gum Recession Treatments in Turkey?

During Open Flap Scaling and Root Planing; your periodontist at Ekiz Clinic removes harmful bacteria from pockets under the diseased gum tissue. Thus, eliminating the pockets or reducing their size. If your bone mass has also decreased after the gingival recession, as Ekiz Clinic, we recommend Regeneration treatment. In this treatment procedure, the lost bone is replaced with regenerative material that will form new bone.

In Soft Tissue Graft Treatment, the gum tissue is stitched around the exposed root. These surgical gum recession treatments are performed under local anesthesia and no pain is experienced. 

How Can I Prevent Gum Recession?

The first precaution to be taken to prevent these diseases is to have good oral hygiene. You can have healthy gums by brushing your teeth 2 times a day, flossing at least 1 time, and professional dental cleaning at Ekiz Clinic every 6 months. Quit smoking if you smoke, and eat a well-balanced and healthy diet. Always use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush your teeth in the proper way of brushing as told by the gum specialist at Ekiz Clinic. You should hold the toothbrush perpendicular to the tooth surface and press gently to not cause recession of the gums and abrasion of the tooth surface. 

How Can The Gingival Recession Be Treated in Turkey?

Surgical treatments or non-surgical treatments can be applied in gum recessions. Mild cases of gum recession can be treated with topical antibiotics, desensitizing agents, dental bonding, fluoride varnishes, and desensitizing toothpaste.

In patients with more gingival recession, surgical procedures are used to treat gingival recession. These surgical treatments include open flap scaling and root planning, regeneration,

and soft tissue graft. The gum specialist (a periodontist) at Ekiz Clinic determines the best type of treatment option for you.
