Doctor! My gums have receded. Can they recover again?

  Here is an introduction to the topic "Doctor, my gums have receded, can they recover?" This will take approximately two to three minutes of your time to read. Thank you for your attention.




Will gum recession gradually recover?


No, it's like when permanent teeth fall out, they won't grow back!

For friends with periodontal disease, gum recession is not unfamiliar. Inflammatory gum recession presents symptoms such as red, swollen, and painful gums, and bleeding gums. If not treated in time, the tooth roots will gradually be exposed, and in severe cases, tooth mobility may occur!


What is gum recession and how does it happen?

Periodontal disease is one of the main causes of gum recession, which can lead to tissue damage around the tooth socket. When the alveolar bone is resorbed, the gum tissue attached to it becomes loose, resulting in gum recession.



Can gum recession be reversed?

  Gum recession caused by periodontitis can be controlled with professional treatment, but the damaged gum tissue and existing gum recession are irreversible.

However, even if gum recession cannot be restored, timely treatment is still necessary. Only by controlling the progression of the disease can we prevent further gum recession and avoid the tragic consequences of loose or lost teeth.


Gum recession leads to tooth looseness, ultimately resulting in tooth loss.


Friendly reminder: Gum recession is one of the causes of tooth loss, so the editor suggests that friends with periodontal disease should see a dentist promptly and brush their teeth using a vertical brushing technique to minimize irritation to the gums.

Are there no preventive measures to prevent further gum recession?


Of course not, regardless of the cause of gingival recession mentioned above, it can be prevented in advance.


How to treat gum recession?


1、Regular oral care.

Maintaining dental hygiene is the most effective way to delay gum recession, and regular teeth cleaning is crucial.

2、Maintain oral hygiene.

Master the correct brushing technique. Use interdental brushes or dental floss to clean the gaps between teeth that are difficult to reach with a toothbrush alone. Avoid using toothpicks, as prolonged use can irritate and cause gum recession in the interdental areas.


3、Regular dental check-ups are essential.

Seeking treatment at a reputable dental institution, dentists can assist you. Common oral diseases such as dental caries and periodontal diseases are mostly chronic conditions with subtle early symptoms that are easily overlooked by individuals. Regular dental check-ups are crucial for maintaining oral health.


4、Seek medical attention early when abnormalities are detected.

If you feel that some of your teeth are abnormally moving, it is important to promptly visit a hospital for examination in order to receive appropriate treatment. Early detection, diagnosis, and treatment can help prevent further gum recession.
