Receding Gums Treatment and Prevention

The gums (gingiva) are the soft tissues of the mouth that surround and support teeth. Healthy gums fit snugly against teeth. When gum lines pull away from the teeth, it is called receding gums or gum recession.Gingival or gum recession is a condition where the protective tissue around your teeth is lost and pulls away towards the root.Gums that recede to expose the root surfaces of teeth is a common condition in adults over the age of 40. Many consider it to be just a sign of aging, and in some cases it is essentially that – often the result of wear and tear or years of aggressive tooth brushing.

Causes of Receding Gums

Gum recession is the process in which the margin of the tissue that surrounds the teeth wears away in a direction toward the the root, exposing more of the tooth over time. Receding gums may be one of the first signs of gum disease. When gum recession occurs, “pockets,” or gaps, form between the teeth and gum line, making it easy for disease-causing bacteria to build up. This is where lost teeth can become a real possibility if left untreated.
