Your dentist may mention that your gums are receding. When the gums pull back and expose tooth roots it can cause sensitivity and possible tooth loss.
Receding gums can be caused by:
– Gum disease due to poor dental hygiene; bacteria accumulate at the gum line causing irritation.
– Inflammation from overly aggressive brushing or teeth grinding can also cause gum recession.
– Smoking or using other tobacco products can cause the gums to recede.
Make regular appointments with your dentist to ensure treatment to prevent complications like loose teeth.
