If you visit your dentist often, then you probably know about the conditions which appear in your mouth. There is a condition affecting the gums which appears when the tissue of the gum around the teeth corrodes and it looks like your gums recede backwards. It’s called receding gums.
A big part of your teeth becomes visible and the line between the gum line and the teeth becomes bigger. This space suddenly becomes an excellent spot for bacteria growth. It usually causes big pain and sensitivity of the teeth. In some very serious cases, people may even lose their teeth! Marlton dental care addresses each patient individually, evaluating their dental needs by conducting a thorough examination and tests to establish and deliver an accurate diagnosis.
This problem appears slowly and gradually and unfortunately, leaves many people unaware that they have it. One of the first and most common signs is that your teeth become very sensitive and larger than before. You may also feel tooth pain and sensitivity.
Several common reasons can cause receding gums: gum disease, periodontal diseases, lack of oral hygiene, hormone imbalance, piercing your tongue, genes, smoking, aggressive brushing, etc.
