  • Condition in which the gums move towards the end of roots and root of the tooth is exposed is known as gums recession. Gum recession can occur because of faulty tooth brushing, tooth malpositioning in dental arch, traumatic bite, gum infections or because of clenching or grinding of teeth. Exposure of the root of the tooth causes tooth sensitivity and looks unaesthetic. If gums recession is severe, then periodontal surgery will be required for it and regeneration or gingival grafting may also be required. If gums recession is mild, then desensitizing tooth paste or restoration can be done. If your teeth have moved outwards and are not aligned, then dental braces, invisaligns or cosmetic procedures like dental lumineers, veneers or dental crowns is required. Cosmetic procedures are faster as compared to braces treatment. Without clinical examination, it is difficult to give definite answer. You can visit a periodontist who is gums specialist for treatment of gums recession.
