Gum recession is an oral condition when the gum tissue begins to recede. This gradually begins to expose the roots of your teeth.
Gum recession, or gingival recession, can be caused by a number of factors.
At Al-Fa Perio, we offer a number of gum recession treatments that we carry out at our periodontal clinic in London.
Common causes of Gum Recession:
- Poor oral health. Like many oral conditions, the most common cause of gum recession is poor oral health. Lack of visits to the dentist and general poor oral health can cause gum recession.
- Aggressive brushing and flossing. Brushing and flossing your teeth is the best way to make sure you maintain a healthy mouth. However, scrubbing your teeth and gums can harm your oral health.
- Grinding your teeth. Teeth grinding is a common habit amongst children, teenagers and adults in the UK. If you find yourself constantly grinding your teeth, it may cause gum recession, erode teeth and cause misalignment.
If you remain unsure about what has caused gum recession in your mouth, book an appointment with a member of our team and visit us at our London periodontal clinic today.
