Understand The Causes Of Gum Recession
When your gums have separated from your teeth, this can put your entire smile at risk. It can allow harmful bacteria to form plaque on the roots of your teeth, which can lead to tooth infections and bone loss. A gum graft is an oral surgery procedure that can restore your gumline, so that soft tissue can once again protect your tooth roots.
Gum recession can develop for one or more of the following reasons:
- Periodontal Disease — Receding gums are a common symptom of the later stages of gum disease.
- Aggressive Tooth Brushing — While it’s important to brush your teeth (twice daily), brushing too hard can be harmful to your teeth and your gum tissue.
- Hormonal Changes — For females going through puberty, pregnancy, or menopause, the gums can become more prone to gum disease during these stages of life.
- Poor Oral Care — Simply put, there are consequences if you don’t care for your mouth.
