Do you have receding gums? Well my name is Michelle and I'm a dental assistant with Solutions and I am going to explain to you how you can stop receding gums. There is no exact method or way on stopping receding gums but once when you start noticing your gums are receding you would need to see our general dentist immediately and then he would be able to inform you or tell you or give you pointers on how you could. Maybe you are brushing your teeth too hard. If you are that will put too much pressure on your gums and your gums actually start to recede so you just want to be very conscious and aware that you are not putting too much pressure on your gums with your bristles from the toothbrush. Also too you would maybe want to rinse with warm salt water rinses. That helps any inflammation in your gums which will relax the gum tissue to adhere better to your tooth which prevents it from receding. You just really, you mainly want to brush your teeth constantly at least two to three times a day because you want to keep the bacteria and the debris off your gums. If you are not brushing your teeth and removing that bacteria and debris then your gums become irritated, they become inflamed which then in return they actually start to pull away from the tooth so brush your teeth, rinse with warm salt water rinses, visit your general dentist on a constant basis, every six months at least and then that would help you to prevent or stop receding gums. Once again my name is Michelle and I just explained to you on how you can stop receding gums.
