Is it recedding
Dentist: Drew Moore DDS MS, Dentist (DDS or equivalent) replied 8 months ago

I do see some slight recession. That can be caused by a couple of things. If you are using anything other than a soft brush, you can do some damage and get some gum recession. If you are doing lots of grinding, you might cause recession. You have some slight recession. However, you have a very nice band of the proper kind of gum attachment support and attachment. Many people have recession and not enough good supporting gum.

So, make sure you're using a soft brush and are just barely brushing along the gumline, and then away from the teeth. If this recession still concerns you or get worse, go to a periodontist and get evaluated to see if you need grafting. Thanks.

If I have answered your question, please accept my answer and leave me a great rating. Thanks and good luck. You should get a periodontist to examine you, but it is not a dire situation.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
