Receding Gum Line – 3 Startling Signs You May Need a Dentist
“A smile is the universal welcome.”
- Max Eastman
The saying goes that a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear.
However, when you have problematic or unsightly gums or teeth, it can certainly hold you back from welcoming all of the beauty the universe has to offer.
A top gum issue that impacts many people’s smile is gum recession. From what it is to what causes it, here is what you need to know about receding gum lines.
What does Receding Gums mean?
Gum recession, also known as a receding gum line, is when the edge of the gum tissue that surrounds your teeth pulls back and wears away. As a result, more of your tooth or the tooth’s root is exposed.
When this happens, it forms gaps or “pockets” between your gum line and teeth. This makes it easy for bacteria to build up and cause issues and diseases. If receding gums are left untreated, it can result in tooth loss because the bone structures and supporting tissue of the teeth become critically damaged.
While gum recession is a common dental issue, it occurs gradually and many people don’t recognize the signs and symptoms:
- The first sign of a receding gum line is tooth sensitivity.
- A tooth or teeth may look longer that normal.
- A notch can be felt near the gum line.
If you suspect you have gum recession, it is NOT something that you want to brush aside. Because there are treatments that both prevent further damage and repair the gums, it is recommended that you make an appointment with your dentist right away.
Can receding gums grow back?
There are several factors that can cause your gums to recede:
Rough Tooth Brushing
Poor Dental Care
Grinding & Clenching
As we previously mentioned, it is vital to your oral health to schedule an appointment with your dentist so that he or she can assess the severity of the receding gum line and recommend a course of treatment, as receding gums do not grow back.
Next, let’s take a closer look how you can INSTANTLY improve your smile and the appearance of your gum line.
