Receding gums can happen because of periodontal disease and aggressive brushing among other things. You should not ignore this situation.

Instead, get gum recession treatment as soon as you can. In Tigard, OR, call 503-210-9802 to visit Premier Dental and Implants and avoid these complications.

Tooth Sensitivity

Receding gums are separating from your teeth. As a result, they don’t provide protection for your roots. This can expose parts of your teeth that are more sensitive to hot, cold, sweet, or acidic foods and drinks. 

Increased Risk of Tooth Decay

That unprotected tooth is more vulnerable to the effects of plaque and tartar buildup. That can allow decay to eat into roots and cause a painful tooth infection to develop.

Tooth Loss

With less help from your gums to keep your teeth in place, those teeth can become looser and looser. In time, they can fall out or need to be removed.
