From your photo, it appears that local factors such as bacterial plaque that has adhered to your root surfaces have not been completely addressed. I suggest you to continue with anti-infective periodontal therapy and LANAP if indicated prior to making a final decision or evaluating for root coverage procedures.

Hi, thank you for your question. I recommend you visit a periodontist because gum recession in many times is associated with gum disease. From the picture you have provided, I can see your gums are swollen, red, irritated, have heavy amounts of bacteria, and tartar. The infection needs to be cleared before assessing and repairing the gums. Best of luck to you.

You are definitely in need of having your teeth cleaned. Removing the debris and allowing them to heal will give a better picture of what the recession truly looks like.
