I had a regular appointment with my dentist last week and he told me that I started to have symptoms of receding gums. The good news is that he thinks it is not too bad and no treatment is required now, but I need to change certain habits.
Receding gums are something new to me. After some research, I learned that gum recession means gum tissue around the teeth shrinks, and too much tooth surface is exposed as a result. Server gum recession may cause tooth ache or tooth lost.
One suggestion my dentist gave me was to change the way I brush my teeth so that I don’t over brush those teeth that are showing signs of receding gums. If you are suffering from receding gums, you should consult your dentist for further assistance. Meanwhile, I have found this article about some natural home remedies to help receding gums.
