4 Reasons that Your Gums Are Receding
Have you noticed that your gums are pulling away from your teeth? There are several factors that could be causing this issue:

• Gum disease. The most common cause of gum recession, periodontal disease will destroy the gum tissue.
• Grinding. If you have a habit of grinding the teeth, the unnecessary pressure that you put on your mouth could cause the gums to recede.
• Aggressive brushing. If you brush or floss too hard, you could be causing trauma to your gums, resulting in receding tissues.
• Hormonal changes. Women are at a greater risk of developing gum disease during certain hormonal changes, such as pregnancy or menopause, and the result could be receding gums.
