What Happens to Your Teeth When Your Gums Recede?

Posted on 12/7/2020 by Todd Jorgenson
What Happens to Your Teeth When Your Gums Recede?When the tissue of your gums pulls back from your teeth, your gums are receding. You may not notice your gums receding right away because it happens gradually. Eventually, though, you may see that your teeth look longer, have sensitivity issues, or have a groove in your teeth at the gumline.

What are Receding Gums?


The periodontal disease, receding gums, is the most notable cause of tooth loss in adults over 40. Your gums start to reduce when bacteria settle along the gum line, causing inflammation. The plaque and bacteria cause the gums' tissue to break down, creating gaps and pockets along the tooth line. These gaps and pockets invite more plaque and bacteria, and the cycle worsens while more of your tissues break down. Your teeth may become sensitive to hot and cold as the tissue breaks down, and the root is exposed- the more exposure, the stronger the sensitivity will be. Your gums may become sore, inflamed, or bleed as the disease progresses.

Eventually, the untreated bacterial build-up will lead to bone and tooth loss, and your teeth will become loose and need extraction if the periodontal disease continues untreated. Poor dental hygiene is one factor in the development of receding gums. Aggressive brushing, smoking, diabetes, and genetics are among the other causes.

Can I Prevent Receding Gums?


Regular brushing, flossing, and use of a bacteria-killing mouthwash can help you guard against receding gums. In the early stages of gum disease, your gums will be inflamed and may bleed. Regular teeth cleanings at our office can remove bacteria-causing plaque build-up and give the professionals a chance to look for early signs of periodontal disease, which may keep you a step ahead of any oral disease. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, call our office to set an appointment. We can go over your risk factors and treatment options.
