Receding gums

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: hennaAddict  (9 years ago)
My gums have been receding for about a year now. My dentist said it was due to my hard brushing. When I floss, my gums bleed as well. I stopped brushing and flossing regularly. For some reason, my gums still recede. I am very depressed about it. I can see that my teeth at the bottom are nearly falling out. Any suggestions on how to stop my gums from receding?

Gum recession is largely determined by the thickness of bone and attached gingiva over the root. Often women are shortchanged in the quantities of these tissues, and suffer recession. Of course smoking grinding the teeth, and brushing too hard can make gums recede. But in the end, it is the genetically-given quantity and quality of these tissues to start with that determines how much recession occurs over the years.
