Frequently Asked Question: Gum Recession Symptoms
Question: How do I know if I have gum recession?
Gum recession, or root exposure, is a disease or pathological process unrelated to age or genetics. Characterized by visible roots, sensitivity to cold or touch or, in extreme cases, loose teeth. Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession. Your gums may have receded for a variety of reasons. Most common is aggressive tooth brushing or periodontal disease.
