Receding gums occur when your gum tissue has worn away around your teeth. This tissue serves
as a protective barrier against harmful bacteria and external stimuli. Without this gum tissue
present, your teeth are more susceptible to disease and trauma. Dr. Scott Cohen is a periodontist
in Orlando, FL that will treat your gum recession and restore your healthy smile.
Gum recession can not only be embarrassing, it can also be a symptom of a more serious issue
such as gum disease.
