Common Causes Of A Receding Gumline

When gums recede, they pull away from teeth. A receding gumline increases your risk of several oral and dental conditions, including gum disease and tooth loss. Here’s an overview of the most common causes of receding gums.

Key takeaways:

–  Brushing your teeth and flossing too harshly.
–  Teeth grinding can damage both the enamel and the gum tissue.
–  Poor dental hygiene and gum disease are other common causes.

A receding gumline can also have a genetic component, but in most cases it can be prevented by following an oral care routine that includes professional cleaning treatments.
