Receding gums will require immediate intervention to stem the tide. This is because as the gums recede they expose the cementum which is the softer inner part of the tooth lying just underneath them. The cementum is much more prone to abrasion than your upper teeth which are protected by enamel.
As the cementum erodes away, the base of your teeth lies exposed. Gradually your teeth become sensitive and you find it increasingly difficult to eat or drink. Over time, your teeth become loose and fall off or have to be extracted at a dental services centre. Apart from affecting your oral health, this will affect the way you look, your smile and ultimately; your confidence.

How to Care for your Oral Health?

The best way to care for your teeth and gums is to brush them gently twice a day. Bed time brushing is extremely crucial as it prevents the accumulation of bacteria and other germs overnight in-between your teeth. It is vital for you to remove as much as dirt from your mouth before bed in order to keep it fresh and clean and also to prevent formation of plaque.
