What is Gum Recession?
Caused by the gum tissue pulling back from the tooth and exposing the tooth’s root, this can lead to decay and tooth loss.

Gum Recession FAQ’s
Can you fix receding gums?
Yes, it is possible to reposition receding gums through medications and surgery. This seemingly minor issue can go on to become gingivitis and even periodontal disease. The sooner you get it treated, the better and comparatively less costly.
Can receding gums grow back?
No, because gums do not grow back the way other tissues do. So do not expect a miracle and consult a dentist to know your options. Treatments are available to handle gum recession before tooth or bone loss occurs.
What causes the recession of gums?
There can be many reasons for the gum recession. In general, it happens due to buildup of (hardened) plaque, brushing too hard, diabetes, HIV, smoking, female hormonal changes, genetics, etc. Routine oral care is the key to avoiding such issues.
How can I heal receding gums naturally?
First of all, prevention is better than cure. For example, use a soft brush, do not smoke, do let plaque buildup and grow. Secondly, natural home remedies are not as effective as advanced receding gum treatments are.
