Gingival Recession

Publié le 7 Feb, 2020

This is a change to the gums at the tooth neck.

During gingival recession, the gums retract, and the root is progressively bared. Receding gums can also lead to poor aesthetics and tooth hypersensitivity.


Treatment consists of:

  • • adapting the tooth brushing method to the fragile gums, because a plaque deposit can cause inflammation; gingivitis
  • • carefully monitoring progression


Note: in case of significant and or unaesthetic gum loss, a gum graft may be proposed.
