Gum recession occurs mainly due to gum diseases. While this may not seem a big problem at its earlier stages, eventually the diseased teeth become loose and their bone is lost rapidly causing tooth loss. The exposed root surfaces are at risk of getting a tooth decay known as root caries which might invite more problems.
While brushing is not the direct cause of gum recession, bad brushing technique might add to the problem. Proper cleaning around the gums is very important for those with gum diseases. One must brush gently starting from gums towards the teeth with soft bristle brush. You can also learn the proper technique of brushing and flossing from us while you visit at Dent Inn.
