If you have receding gums, you may have severe gum disease or another dental condition that should not be ignored. Receding gums can lead to tooth loss, so it’s important to get treatment from your dentist. Causes of receding gums:

– Brushing and flossing your teeth too aggressively.

– Inadvertently grinding your teeth when you sleep (a condition known as bruxism).

– Bacteria and plaque buildup beneath the gum line.

“Regardless of what’s causing your receding gums, your dentist can help.”
