Receding Gums

Is it normal to have receding gums? NO.

Severe Gum Recession

Gum recession can be caused by occlusal stress related to sleep disordered breathing, gingivitis, improper tooth brushing and flossing and/or genetics and hormonal changes. At the first sign of recession see your dentist to obtain a proper evaluation for treatment of the specific cause. If left untreated this condition could cause the loss of the affected teeth.
