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.

Gum receding in children, do they grow back to normal over time?

See a dentist

Children
Gum recession is the process in which the margin of the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth wears away, or pulls back, exposing more of the tooth, or the tooth's root. Receding gums may be one of the first signs of gum disease. Gum recession is not something you want to ignore. If you think your child's gums are receding, make an appointment with your dentist.

Does injured gum from gingivitis grow back?

Gum damage

Perio_disease
Mild changes like swollen, puffy, inflamed, red, bleeding and slightly receded gums usually can recover 100% with proper dental care and oral hygiene. The longer it goes on and the greater the changes, the less likely to recover. Gingivitis is the early stage of periodontal (gum) disease and usually easy to treat. Periodontitis is more difficult to treat and may result in permanent damage.

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

Why is there a bubble in my gums by my back teeth?

Probable abscess

Teeth
A bubble -like a pimple - on the gums is typically an abscess (infection). There are 2 types- gum abscess (periodontal disease) and tooth abscess (root canal). You need to see a dentist to examine and take radiographs(x-rays) to determine the problem and the appropriate treatment.

what this this bump that i have on my gum near the back teeth?

Could be abcess...

Teeth
since I don't know how old you are, it is hard to say..if you are in your twenties then it could be your wisdom teeth erupting if you still have them. If you don't still have your wisdom teeth, or you are older, then it could be a gum infection, with a small abcess. People can also get tumors on their gums, especially if you smoke. You should see a dentist.
