Gums are an important part of the mouth, more important than you might think. If you have receding gums, it could be a bigger problem than you might think. Common everyday things like brushing your teeth, or eating over time can start to become painful as more of the teeth become exposed. This is caused by the gums that are around the teeth become inflamed, this is mainly due because of periodontal disease.
As gums continue to recede, and more teeth become exposed, sometimes even the teeth roots can become exposed making the tooth more susceptible to cavities and can become extremely sensitive to cold/hot temperatures in food or drinks. Or simply looking for a cosmetic solution.
