Gums can recede for a number of reasons.
It might be due to periodontal disease, or it might just be due to localized areas which have developed over time. It's important to have a full assessment to find out the cause of your receding gums.
And there are treatments available, treatments which can make the areas look better, feel stronger, and improve the resilience of the gum from future recession.
If you've got gum disease and you've got receding gums as a result of that, then the receding gums have to be managed carefully.
In those situations, we don't want the receding gums to get worse. The important thing is to seek advice and treatment as soon as you notice it.
