Receding Gum Line

This is what Receding Gum Line looks like. Common reasons for receding gums include overzealous brushing, gum disease and heredity. Depending on the reason and severity of a case, gums can be restored through oral hygiene care. If gums get infected to the point of Periodontitis, a dentist may suggest gum surgery. The infected tissue may be excised through Gingivectomy treatment and replaced through a procedure such as a Free Soft Tissue Graft. A deep cleaning may also be required as bacteria when gum disease advanced to Periodontitis as bacteria can seep beneath the gumline into the base of the tooth.
