Signs of Receding Gums
Gum recession is just one of the side effects of progressing gum disease and may also be an outcome of periodontal disease. Sensitive teeth, exposed roots, teeth that look larger than normal, and a notch that forms around the gum line are some of the common signs of gum recession. We can determine the extent of gum recession during your consultation.
Gum disease is caused by bacteria that destroy gum tissue. Untreated gum disease can cause the gums to recede from the teeth as the infection spreads.
Aggressive Tooth Brushing
Those who brush their teeth aggressively or in the wrong way can cause the enamel on the tooth wear away and the gums to recede.
Teeth Grinding or Clenching
Clenching or grinding of the teeth, both when asleep or awake, can put too much force on the teeth and gums. This can cause the gums to recede.
Tobacco users are likely to have a sticky plaque on their teeth that can be difficult to properly remove. This can cause gum recession.
