Gum recession is a common and uncomfortable disorder that results over an extended period of time. Though gum recession is often a side effect of untreated periodontal disease, it can also occur from brushing too hard, using the wrong toothbrush or grinding/clenching your teeth. People with a misaligned bite and tongue piercings are also prone to gum recession. Once upon a time, the only treatment for gum recession was gum grafting, an intensive and lengthy procedure. Today, however, periodontists use a far less invasive method called pinhole surgical technique.

Whether gradual or sudden, gum recession is uncomfortable at best and painful at worst. Receding gums leave the roots of your teeth exposed, making them sensitive to hot and cold foods and drinks and even the air. In extreme cases, gum recession can lead to tooth loss.
