What is Recession?

Teeth are essentially made of enamel (above the gum) and root (below the gum).The gum can expose the root and look receded from many factors: age, plaque and calculus, and trauma. Nothing can be done about age! But the other two factors are controllable by you. Keeping the gums as clean and free of plaque and calculus is your daily job and our pleasure at your check ups.

Trauma though can be from over brushing and even clenching. These exposed surfaces are usually more sensitive and prone to decay. You can even wear out the root from further trauma causing an indent called abrasion or abfraction! When you brush, be sure to use gentle, short strokes with a soft or extra soft toothbrush.
