Home Remedies for Receding Gums



Receding gum is a major tooth ailment. When the gum outline and bone in the mouth recedes or moves backward, away from the teeth, the condition is referred to as receding gums. Receding gums expose the teeth roots, and make the teeth highly sensitive to hot or cold substances. The problem is also termed as gingival recession. The recession occurs due to the loss of gum tissues. The problem is common among middle aged people. The ailment does not occur overnight, but follows a gradual and lengthy process.

Causes

1. Inadequate, improper brushing and lack of hygienic sense may lead to the growth of bacteria in mouth. These bacteria produce enzymes that can dissolve the bone away from the teeth.

2. Aggressive scrubbing and brushing may cause the enamel at the gum line to wear away, thereby causing recession.

3. Self-induced vomiting

4. Gritting and grinding of teeth or Bruxism

5. Piercing of lips or tongue

6. Orthodontic movement of teeth

7. Sensitivity of teeth to SLS or sodium lauryl sulfate, found in most tooth pastes.
