Although there may be a simple reason and a simple remedy, receding gums are something that should be treated by a dentist sooner rather than later.

In the majority of cases, receding gums are a symptom of gum (periodontal) disease. When caught and treated early periodontal disease is very treatable. When left untreated, it can lead to:

– Infections

– Loose teeth

– Tooth loss

The more advanced periodontal disease becomes “the harder it is to treat” so treatment should be sought immediately. Find out more at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/what-are-the-causes-of-a-receding-gum-line/
