Help with receding gums

Recession coverage

If the gum is healthy, it is about 9 millimetres thick and securely bound to the underlying bone. It forms a firm collar around the teeth and tooth necks and protects them from everyday influences. Healthy gum also offers protection against gum inflammation which may develop as a result of injuries or the accumulation of food in the gum pockets. What may happen is that the gum, usually so firm, recedes over time – independently of inflammatory processes like those involved in periodontitis. The problem is as follows: The sensitive tooth necks and part of the root surface areas are exposed by receding gums (gum recession). So they are no longer adequately protected. Recession coverage is required here.
