Mild gum recession is common. The gum remodels to the shape of the jaw bone under the gum. The
edge of the jaw bone is not as smooth and uniform as the gum so the gum changes to the shape of
the bone over time.
Gum recession could also be more serious and could be linked to gum disease. Please see Gum
disease treatment under general dentistry on the home page.
