When gums recede, they pull back from your teeth causing the roots to become exposed. This can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Here’s what you should know about this problem:
– Receding gums can be caused by aggressive brushing and flossing.
– Gum disease can cause receding gums.
– Bruxism (tooth grinding) can also lead to receding gums.
– Regular dental appointments can help prevent these complications.
The treatment will depend on the cause of your receding gums. See your dentist regularly and follow advice to treat receding gums, to avoid losing a tooth.
