Receding gums is a serious and widespread dental problem that can lead to gum disease and tooth loss. Unfortunately, it often goes unnoticed. That is why you should see the dentist regularly for assessment.

Key takeaways:

–  Avoid brushing and flossing too aggressively leading to lead receding gums.

–  Gum disease destroys the gum tissue and the bone supporting the teeth.

–  Genetics may increase your risk of receding gums. Grinding your teeth may also put too much force on them causing the gums to recede.

Prevent gum recession by seeing your dentist regularly for checkups and treatment.
