Gum recession is a common condition that progresses where the gum tissue pulls back and away from the tooth. This can cause teeth to look longer than they used to while also cause pockets to form that can collect bacteria and become infected.
There are some common reasons that gums may recede. These include:
Periodontal gum disease has many stages, and gingivitis is one of the most common ones to have. Gingivitis starts out with swollen and painful gums and it can lead to the destruction of your gums and a receding gum line. Blood while flossing can be a sign.
Pyria is the official name of gum disease. This usually happens because oral health and hygiene isn’t kept up with and it causes painful gums that may bleed and recede over time.
If bone is lost that cannot regrow. It does not seem that gum tissue itself can regrow naturally either. You can help by deep cleaning your teeth and taking proper care of your gums.
It is important to notice any problems early and correct them to prevent any serious recession. Cleaning and treatment is the only way to help.
