Fight Back Against Receding Gums to Prevent Sensitivity & Tooth Loss
You may be wondering why gum recession is such a big deal if the progression is so slow. The problem is that many people think it is okay to ignore gum recession, and they allow this controllable problem to become worse. If you allow gum recession to continue, you put yourself at risk for severe tooth sensitivity, advanced gum disease infections, and even lost teeth.
The first sign you will notice is tooth sensitivity. Sharp pain will occur when you eat foods that are hot, cold, or sweet. You might also notice knots or gaps forming along the gumline. It is this space that makes it easier for bacteria to infect your gum tissue, which could lead to more serious health concerns as well as the loss of teeth.
