  • The receding gum line at age of 15 years can be due to poor oral hygiene. As you are not brushing your teeth properly, it can cause deposits which causes inflammation of gums leading to gum disease. Due to this inflammation and gum diseases, the gums start receding. For this you have to visit a Peridontist who will do SCRP (Scaling) and after that you have to maintaing proper oral hygiene by doing brushing, flossing etc. For more info on gum diseases you can read this article... www.identalhub.com/article_what-are-treatments-of-gum-disease-21.aspx
