I have cut my gumline due to brushing too hard. I have a slight recession on my gum. I am taking good care of my teeth. But I am panic. There is no bleeding and pain present. I used a water pick to clean it. I visited a dentist before four months.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I can understand your concern. I have gone through the attachment (attachment removed to protect patient identity). You have a pathological pocket or a healed pathological pocket. The gum recedes due to the pocket or due to faulty brushing technique. I recommend you get oral prophylaxis (dental scaling) done. Use an ultra soft toothbrush. Use modified bass technique for brushing. Also, have a habit of maintaining your brushing time within three minutes. Please let me know if you have any systemic condition like diabetes or hypertension.
Thank you doctor,
Is it an emergency? Can I do it within next week? I am asking it because I do not want to lose my teeth.

No, it is not an emergency. Gingival recession is a slow process, and you do not worry. You can do oral prophylaxis after a week too.
