a few months ago I went to the dentist to clean tartar but after cleaning why my gums are shrinking. Finally, until now I feel pain, the doctor said, the gums will be normal in a few months. Is that true

1 Answer:

Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Tartar is plaque on the teeth that builds up and hardens which is formed due to food debris and bacteria in the mouth. Tartar can damage teeth and gums. The shrinkage of your gums that you feel is most likely caused by the tartar itself, not from the tartar cleaning process. When the tartar is removed, the damaged part of the gum becomes more visible, so you can notice that your gums are shrinking. Even though it takes a long time, the gums can return to health if you take good care of your teeth and gums. Brush your teeth regularly and correctly twice a day. Choose a toothpaste that contains fluoride. Using dental floss and mouthwash can help you prevent tartar from forming in the future. Don't forget to drink water after and during meals. Avoid cigarettes and coffee.


That's my explanation. I hope this helps.

Regards,


dr. Selvi
