Why Receding Gums Should Never Be Ignored

Healthy gums are an important part of good dental health. Receding gums always need to be treated by the dentist:

– Receding gums caused by aggressive brushing, enamel erosion or teeth grinding can be treated by changes to your oral care routine.

– If receding gums are a sign of gum disease, this can be reversed by a deep cleaning session by the dentist.

– Without treatment, you risk tooth loss.

“Your gums play a crucial role in the health of your teeth. Gums cover and protect the tooth roots and also serve to help anchor the teeth in place.”
