Recession affects people of all ages.
However…it’s most common in people over 65 years of age.
And you’re more likely to develop recession if you:
- Have gum disease
- Had braces or other orthodontic treatment
- Use chewing tobacco
- Have a lip or tongue piercing
- Brush your teeth aggressively
Yes, I’m talking about gum recession!
There’s an old saying: remember your roots.
Meaning, remember where you came from so you know where you’re going.
Well, in dentistry, remembering your roots is all about preventing gum recession and disease.
Because the last thing you want to happen is to have your tooth roots exposed!
Even though gum recession can’t always be prevented, there are several ways you can reduce your risk of infection-related gum
Thoroughly brushing your teeth twice per day.
Flossing once daily.
Getting regular dental checkups.
Using a soft-bristled toothbrush.
Not smoking, vaping, or using chewing tobacco.
I fully understand how difficult it can be to maintain your oral hygiene on a daily basis, so make sure to let me help you with that:
