Why Are My Gums Receding?

As we get older, we may notice that our gums appear to be receding.  Teeth may become more sensitive, develop decay, or even feel a bit loose or less sturdy.  Receding gums gradually reveal more of the roots of our teeth so you may notice a darker gum color around the rim. Gum recession can impact the appearance of our smile and often leads to issues surrounding one’s self-confidence.
