Do You Have Receding Gums?… and Why You Need to Be Concerned

What Dr. Mandy Kouroshnia can say in an interview:

  • Receding gum means you are losing attachment.  
  • Attachment is made of the jaw bone and the overlying gum, both of which hold your teeth strongly and securely in the jaw bone.
  • Losing attachment can lead to loose teeth. Unpleasant aesthetics (long looking teeth that have a different color at the gum line and spaces that’s called black triangles: the black spaces between teeth that’s not filled by gum) severe sensitivities since the root surface is exposed.
  • Remember the root surface was not designed to be exposed, it was supposed to be embedded in the bone covered by the gum. You take those two protective layers away, it gets very sensitive to any stimuli including hot, cold, sweets, acidic chemicals and literally any physical contact to the exposed area.
