gum recessionGum recession is a fairly common occurrence in dental health that results as the gums begin to pull away from the teeth. Not only does this hurt the appearance of your smile, but it also places your oral health at risk. The gum that surrounds the teeth begins to pull away, which can cause the tooth’s root to become exposed when left untreated. Without treatment, pockets will begin to form between the teeth and gum line, which provides the perfect opportunity for bacteria to become trapped in the pockets. As a result, the teeth, tissue, and bone structures can become damaged, and eventually lead to tooth loss. To prevent the damage and possible loss of a tooth, you will need to be proactive with treating gum recession.
