Thoughts? Could my receding gums grow back if I start brushing regularly?

No, but

Dentists
Good oral hygiene is only 1/2 the battle. You need to see your dentist to determine the cause of your recession. Is it from periodontal ( gum) disease, over vigorous or incorrect brushing technique, from stress by clenching or grinding your teeth, genetic predisposition, prior difficult orthodontic treatment, poor occlusion (the way our teeth meet)? All of this needs to be evaluated by a dentist.

When bottom gums grow back does it hurt?

Dental evaluation

What are your lower gums growing back from? If you had surgery there can be some discomfort during the healing process. Talk to a dentist, periodontist, or surgeon about your concerns.

How long is it supposed to it take for receding gums to come back?

They don't

Bones
When gums recede they don't grow back even if you eliminate the cause You should see a periodontist who can correct the recession by grafting tissue or using a membrane out of a box This is a plastic surgery procedure that works extremely well Remember when the gums recede the underlying bone recedes as well weakening the support of the tooth

If I have lost a small piece of my gums through rugby, what should I do? Will it grow back on it's own?

Lost gum?

1-call_dentist
Some do and some don't. It really depends upon where you lost the gum tissue and how the injury is handled. It's best to see your dentist or a Periodontist right away for a one on one clinical examination and consultation. Better to be safe than sorry.

You either have an impact wisdom teeth that causes inflammation and tried to drain, or in the case of the wisdom teeth missing or already extracted, you may have an odontogenous cyst that is growing and draining. Consult with your dentist for removal of the cyst and FOLLOW UP to prevent recurrence.

There's like a white pimple on my upper gums that can pop and grow back. It looks like there's a little white next to it. I have a cavity to. Ideas?

Abcessed tooth

Cavity
See your dentist. You may have a dead infected tooth. If this happens it can form a pimple above the tooth. A sinus track can form from the tooth infection and drain out into the mouth through the gum or mucosa.
