Gum recession - what is it?
Gum recession is a pathology accompanied by the modification of soft tissues. The process is characterized by a sluggish course. Leads to the fact that some of the roots of the teeth are exposed. The problem is not only aesthetic, but also causes some discomfort. Gum recessions are observed in patients of different ages, but in 95% of cases, they occur in older people.
A number of reasons leading to the problem under consideration:
- plaque, calculus - hard areas gradually displace soft tissues;
- specific anatomy of the alveolar process - if teeth with large roots have thinned bone tissue, there is a lack of blood circulation, and damage to the capillaries completely provokes the loss of the cortical plate, as a result, a gap is formed between the crown and the gum;
- insufficient oral hygiene;
- injuries to the teeth and jaw;
- incorrect use of arsenic - the ingestion of a substance on the gums contributes to their recession;
- inflammatory processes in the gums;
- pathology of the structure of the frenum. li>
Apart from a purely aesthetic problem, gum recessions cause increased sensitivity of the teeth. This contributes to the appearance of discomfort, pain while eating. In the presence of pathology, there is a more frequent occurrence of caries.
