Receding gums can be a potentially harmful issue if not addressed and resolved in time. The space left behind from this is perfect for bacteria growth.
You see when the gums covering our teeth begin to wear away it looks as if our gums are receding. This leaves the root of the tooth directly exposed in most cases and is extremely painful. There are quite a few symptoms of receding gums:
- Your teeth will become more sensitive.
- Your teeth may increase in size.
- You may feel toothaches or pains.
This receding gum issue can be caused by gum disease, lack of oral hygiene, aggressive brushing, hormonal imbalance, smoking, or even genetics. If you discover that you are in fact dealing with this issue in time your doctor can treat your teeth with root preparation or tooth scaling. Though if this isn’t caught in time you may end up having to go through surgery on your gums in order to undo the receding.
If you want to avoid surgery you might want to look into some of the home remedies I am going to list below. Granted if your issue is severe please do see a doctor.
