Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth pulls back or wears away, exposing the tooth roots.

Various factors contribute to gum recession, including improper brushing techniques, gum disease, genetics, and tobacco use.

Prevention of Gum Recession

Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth pulls back or wears away, exposing the tooth roots. This condition can lead to tooth sensitivity, an unsightly appearance, and even tooth loss if left untreated. Various factors contribute to gum recession, including improper brushing techniques, gum disease, genetics, teeth grinding, and tobacco use.

Prevention Tips: Preventing gum recession begins with adopting good oral hygiene practices. Our dental experts recommend the following tips to safeguard your gums:

1. Electric Toothbrush: Using an electric toothbrush is the easiest way to improve your at home dental hygiene. Avoid aggressive brushing, as it can harm your gum tissue.

2. Interdental Cleaning: Daily interdental cleaning helps remove plaque and bacteria between the teeth and along the gumline, preventing gum disease and recession.

3. Regular Dental Check-ups: Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings to identify early signs of gum recession and address any concerns promptly.

4. Quit Smoking: Smoking is a significant risk factor for gum disease and recession. Quitting smoking can contribute to better gum health.
