What Causes Gum Recession?

Gum recession occurs when gum tissues surrounding your teeth pull away and begin to recede down the length of the root. When this occurs, the root surfaces of your teeth are exposed, increasing the risk of damage to this vulnerable tooth structure. Gum recession is a common condition, and is caused by factors that include gum disease, bruxism (teeth grinding), tooth misalignment and trauma. Genetics and over aggressive homecare habits also contribute to a receding gum line in some cases. It is important to understand that receded gums will not regrow on their own. However, Dr. Arta Farahmand offers the effective gum recession treatment you need to restore comfort, health and appearance to your smile.
