Symptoms to Look Out For

Gum recession can be stopped in its tracks early if you look out for some of the common symptoms. The first sign that you may be at risk for receding gums is if you notice bleeding when you brush or floss. Your gums may feel painful and swollen. You may also experience bad breath if your gums are beginning to recede. When you examine your mouth, you may notice the bottom of your teeth becoming more visible. As this condition progresses, your teeth may even start to feel loose.
