How To Prevent Receding Gums

The sure-fire way to prevent gum recession is to take good care of your teeth by:

  • Brushing and flossing every day.
  • Visiting your dentist at least twice a year. If you are experiencing gum recession, your dentist may want to see you more often.
  • Always use a soft-bristled toothbrush and ask your dental professional to demonstrate the proper brushing technique.
  • If you have misaligned teeth, or if you grind your teeth, discuss treatment options with your dentist.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet.
  • Lastly, quit smoking if you are a smoker.

By following these guidelines, you’ll enjoy a healthy smile for years to come by preventing gum recession!
