Gum recession is when the gums move lower, exposing teeth roots. The common causes include poor oral hygiene, gingivitis (inflammation of gums), vigorous brushing, and periodontitis (inflammation of the structures supporting the tooth). Diabetes, smoking, and old age increase the risk of gum recession. It can cause sensitivity to cold and heat, bone loss, and shaky tooth. Sensitivity can be reduced with the use of desensitizing agents, composite restoration, and gum veneers. It can also be treated using tissue grafting.
