    • Receding gums, also referred to as gingival recession, lead to exposure of roots of the tooth.
    • Receding gums are linked to problems such as tooth sensitivity, infection, tooth decay, pain, and tooth loss.
    • Gingival recession is caused by poor oral hygiene, physical wear, misaligned teeth, lip piercings, periodontal disease, and dental treatments.
