Here are some steps that can be taken to lower the risk of developing a gum recession:-

  • Lower your stress levels by finding ways to relax that work for you. In turn, this will lower your risk for a gingival recession.
  • As a final note, you can never know if losing gum will be caused by poor dental care or by genetics.
  • It's recommended that you see your dentist twice a year. For optimal results, consider seeing your dentist annually, or every year.
  • Brushing your teeth twice a day is just as important as flossing because it helps clean out bacteria stuck in those tight spaces and between teeth.
  • Take one teaspoon of salt and add to one cup of warm water. Rinse for two minutes after any meal.
  • Acidic foods are harmful to your teeth. They lead to tooth decay and other dental damage over time, so watch your intake and limit your acidic products like tomatoes and coffee.*

But be sure to see your dentist if you have any intense teeth clenching or grinding habits, as it might cause a Gingival Recession.
