When a root is exposed, the risk of developing cavities increases, not to mention the discomfort of hot and cold sensitivity or esthetic considerations.
Here are a few factors that predispose people to receding gums:
- Very thin gums to begin with
- Misaligned teeth
- Poor tooth brushing technique
- Involuntary teeth grinding (bruxism)
- Poor dental restoration
