What Is Gum Recession?

It’s a good idea to see a dentist or periodontist if you deal with gum recession, but you should also know why the problem came about in the first place. See this video to find out what exactly gum recession is.

Gum recession is often associated with gingivitis and periodontitis, and it occurs when the gums pull away from the teeth. You might also experience gum recession if one or more of your teeth are not in favorable positions, as this kind of displacement can aggravate the gums. Gum recession is also associated with gum disease, which can contribute to tooth migration and tooth loss in addition to an overall decline in health.
