All You Need to Know About Receding Gums

Receding gums are a serious problem. When the gums pull back and expose tooth roots it can cause sensitivity and possible tooth loss.

– Receding gums can be caused by bacteria from poor oral hygiene, gum disease or smoking, or damage from bruxism or overly aggressive brushing.

– To prevent receding gums, maintain good oral hygiene with regular gently brushing and flossing and seeing your dentist for regular checkups.

– Never ignore receding gums as they can result in sensitivity and pain when the root of the tooth becomes exposed and even lead to tooth loss.

“Don’t wait to see your oral healthcare professional if you’re worried about gum recession!”
