Receding gums refer to a loss of gum tissue resulting in an exposure of the roots of the teeth. Gum recession is a common problem in adults over the age of 30, but may also occur starting with the teens. Gum recession can cause tooth sensitivity, impair dental aesthetics and in rare cases, can lead to tooth loss.
