When harmful bacteria in your mouth live on your gums, they produce an acid that irritates and damages your gum tissues. When your gums are starting to recede from your teeth, this often means you have gum disease because of those bacteria. If left untreated, you could end up losing your teeth.
That’s why you need to call our Leawood, KS dental office at 913-945-1612 when you first think you have gum recession. Our Leawood dentists can use gum disease treatments to save your smile.
