Re: Gum line is going back....PLEASE HELP!

Hi dog13579,
Hope that u have already been helped. It is uncommon to have gum line going back a lot within only 3 months period. If it is, then it is definitely a conern and u should have it examed further. Some factors can cause recession. Eg, periodontal disease, inadequate attached gingiva (thick gum), improper brushing technique. Often time if your bone loss is not too bad, the dentist (or periodontist) can do a gum graft surgery to put the gum back. This procedure will not only cover the exposed root surface, but also decrease the chance of recession in the future. Hope this help
