People usually avoid going to the dentist because the dental problems can be very frustrating and painful. One very common dental problem is called receding gums. The gums tissue corrodes around the teeth and the gums pull back. This is why this condition is called receding gums or gum recession.
When the gums are receding the teeth become bigger and the line between the teeth and the gums becomes visible and exposed. When that area of the teeth is exposed the teeth become very sensitive because bacteria can grow in that area which causes unbearable pain. Sometimes this condition can lead to loss of teeth.
Because the process of gum recession is slow and long people usually don’t even see it until it`s too late.
The reasons for developing this condition are different. Here are some of them: smoking, genes, bad oral hygiene, gum illnesses, aggressive brushing, tongue pricings, periodontal diseases, hormone imbalance etc.
There are some medical methods that can repair the condition of the teeth like tooth scaling, surgery or root planning. So if you suspect that you might have this problem consult your dentist.
Also you can try to eliminate the problem with some natural remedies.
