Causes of Gum Recession

Causes of Gum Recession

What is gum recession?

Gum recession is a gradual dental health condition where your gum tissue pulls back towards the root of the tooth, exposing your teeth to infection and the threat of decay. If not treated timely, gum recession can cause tooth sensitivity, aesthetic concerns, bone loss and even tooth loss.

Causes of receding gums

Gingivitis or Periodontitis
Hardened plaque build-up
Genetic history of periodontal disease
Rough brushing of teeth
Clenching or grinding of teeth
Misaligned teeth

While referrals are not mandatory, at The Perio Specialists, our team collaborates with your general dentist to ensure you receive specialised care and support when it comes to the management of your receding gums.
