This was really interesting to read up on! It's pretty astounding what can happen if you dont take care of your teeth! As long as you brush your teeth regularly, and go to the dentist, will you have problems with receding gums?

I actually have been told by my dentist that I have receding gums. Is it reversible? I'm going to ask my dentist in Bridgewater when I see him, but that won't be for a couple more months.

I had the beginning stages of receding gums but have been able to control it by flossing more regularly and changing my brushing habits. My dentist recommended following my regular tooth brushing with a mouthwash rinse but also brushing my teeth a second time with the mouthwash to get it under my gums and keep tarter and plaque at bay. This helped a lot. You can see his site, Gover and Gover Dentistry, at .

One friend of mine used sulfur supplementation on her receding gums. Having a sulci that are too deep can make eating popcorn impossible. She still avoids popcorn.

Thank you so much for the link to the information about receding gums. I have been noticing lately that my gums were receding. I hope nothing is wrong with them. Does anyone know how I can reverse receding gums? My gums have receded pretty far and I would like to get them back to normal.
