Gum Recession and Tooth Loss
Receding gums can be caused either by trauma or periodontal disease. Only removal of these etiologic factors can arrest gum recession. Gum recession follows bone loss and if enough bone loss occurs, you will end up losing the teeth. Since you've lost some teeth already, you may want to see a board-certified periodontist for diagnosis and proper treatment to prevent future tooth loss. Take Care, Dr. Krivitsky
