What causes gum recession?

Gum recession can be caused by numerous factors including but not limited to the following reasons:

  • Genetics: Naturally thin gums are more prone to receding when undergoing normal wear and tear of eating and brushing throughout life.
  • Abrasion: Vigorous tooth brushing with a hard bristled tooth brush or a "scrubbing motion" being employed with excessive pressure when brushing near the gum line can lead to recession.
  • Trauma
  • Gum disease: Especially in cases where the gums are naturally thin, build up of bacterial deposits will initially cause inflammation followed by recession.
  • Treatment for gum disease: When gum disease is successfully treated, the gums can also recede as they heal, however in this case the gums will be healthy.
  • During or after Orthodontic treatment: Again especially where the gums are naturally thin to begin with.
  • After gum surgery
  • Any many more

Does all gum recession need to be treated?

Gum recession is not a disease. It can occur as a consequence of disease or its successful treatment or due to the general wear and treat that occurs throughout life. 

As a result not every case of gum recession needs treatment. We would only advise treatment in cases where:

  • The recession is due to gum disease itself,
  • It is creating an unsightly cosmetic appearance.
  • It is the cause of sensitivity  
  • The gums are profoundly tender and difficult to brush
  • The gums are very thin and likely to get worse if not treated.
  • Our patients wish to prevent them from getting worse
  • Around dental implants

How is gum recession treated?

Firstly the gums would be thoroughly assessed by one of our experts. Where treatment is warranted and suitable then gum surgery carried out by a periodontist is a very clever and special treatment that can be carried out to both reverse the recession and/or thicken gums that are particularly thin and prone to further recession in future.
