Why Do Gums Recede?

Your gums may begin to recede for a number of reasons, including periodontal disease, poor dental hygiene, aggressive tooth brushing, genetics, tobacco use, hormonal changes, and some medical conditions such as diabetes. If you’re worried that your gums are receding, visit a dentist in Alpharetta for treatment.

If left untreated, receding gums can cause damage to the tissue and bone structure of the teeth, resulting in tooth loss that requires treatment with dental implants or dentures. Receding gums can also be a sign of gum disease. Visit your dentist regularly, as he or she will be able to check your gums for any signs of recession.
