Do you notice that your gums are starting to recede? Well my name is Michelle and I am a dental assistant with Solutions and I'm going to explain to you on how you can repair receding gums. You definitely want to go see your general dentist so therefore he would be able to assist you in repairing receding gums. A lot of times if you are a hard toothbrush, whenever you brush your teeth if you brush your teeth too hard you will start to get receding gums so you just really want to focus on making sure that you are not brushing your teeth too hard or brushing your gums too hard. You also want to have a soft toothbrush which what that means is you want to buy the toothbrush where your bristles are soft, you don't want to get a toothbrush where the bristles are so hard that you can barely move them because that is going to put too much pressure on on your gums which will start to make your gums recede. So you definitely want to get a soft toothbrush that you can get from over-the-counter or at your general dentist's office or you also choose and want to really focus when you brush your teeth, you want to focus instead of aiming down towards your gums. You want to actually aim up. You want to turn your bristles upward and move your toothbrush in a circular motion. That will help repair receding gums because it will start to actually push your gums back up into place, slowly but surely. It is not going to do it fully but it will do it a little bit at a time and then follow up with your general dentist and your hygienist for your regular routine visit so therefore they would be able to monitor you and help you out with any receding gums that you may have. Once again my name is Michelle and I just explained to you on how you can repair receding gums.
