With mild recession due to improper home care, after a professional cleaning and proper maintenance, they can sometimes grow back. More often, moderate to severe gum recession requires cessation of the cause (bruxism, overzealous brushing, etc.) and corrective periodontal surgery.

Gum tissue does not regenerate, so when it is lost, it is important for patients to control the reason for initial recession (whether it be poor oral health care, bruxism, etc.) and then speak to a periodontist about corrective soft tissue surgery to rebuild the tissue in the area and protect the roots of the natural teeth.
