  • Receding gums

    I've been through 4 years on orthodontic treatment, two years waisted on someone who didn't know what they were doing, now two years and counting trying to repair his mistakes, just had braces off again, aged 36, started4 years ago, but I've lost so much gum, I'm going to have to save for gum graphs top and bottom? Does anyone have any experience on this or does anyone know how much it costs

  • Receding Gums, is usually a sign of periodontitis. Plague building underneath your gums resulting in bone loss.

    I would see a dentist who specialises in this to ascertain if you have this problem.

    If left un-attended, over a period of time, the bone loss is so great that you can not graph it, replace it and consequently end up with false teeth.

    Usually it is hereditary but it can also be caused by smoking, sugary drinks.

    • You need to visit a dentist to know your dental condition. If you have completely lost your gums then it may only be cured by gum grafting. Receding gums can only be reverse in some cases.
