Top Tips To Prevent Gum Recession

Receding gums is a potentially serious oral health condition that can be caused by genetic and lifestyle factors. Here are some tips on how to prevent it.

Key takeaways:

  • Focus on preventing gum disease through a strict oral hygiene routine and a healthy diet.
  • Visit the dentist regularly. This can help address problems like gum disease, teeth grinding or clenching before they cause gum recession.
  • Brush your teeth gently and use a soft-bristled toothbrush.

Although not every case of gum recession can be prevented, there are measures you can take to make your teeth and gums healthier and stronger.
