Gum recession, also known as gingival recession, is the loss of gum tissue that can eventually lead to root exposure and related issues. We see this issue become more common in adults over the age of 40. However, the process can start at a younger age. If you are consistently attending your dental check-ups, it should be easy for your general dentist to identify receding gums in the early stages.
Common symptoms for this condition include sensitive teeth, visible roots, longer-looking teeth, inflammation, and more. At Madan Periodontics, we have various effective procedures and services that can help combat the effects of gum recession so you can get the most out of your natural smile while preserving your future oral health.
