Causes and Treatment of a Receding Gumline

A receding gumline, with the gum tissue moving back from the teeth, can lead to pain and tooth sensitivity. Tooth loss can also occur when gums start to recede. Key takeaways: – Take care when brushing and flossing, as being overly aggressive can cause receding gums. – Gum disease due to bacteria is another cause of receding gums and a dentist may advise a deep clean. – Genetics can make someone pre-disposed to a receding gumline, for which a dentist can discuss available treatments. “Your dentist may suggest a root planing and scaling, which is another term for a deep cleaning that helps to remove any infection and bacteria from the gum tissue. This procedure can help heal gum disease and encourage gum tissue grow back.” Read the full story here https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/what-are-receding-gumlines-and-how-are-they-treated/  ]]>
