Gum Recession 101

Gum recession is when your gums pull away from your teeth, but why does it happen? This is a symptom of gum disease, and it could mean that you’re not taking care of your teeth properly. Check out this video clip to learn a little bit about gum recession.

Like many health conditions, gum recession will get worse if you fail to treat it. People typically suffer from gum recession because of trauma to the mouth, gum disease, or abnormal tooth positioning. Talk to your dentist about scaling and root planing to reduce your risk of gum recession and enjoy your smile.
