In brief: Yes it can

Where there is recession there is also some loss of the bone supporting your teeth.
If you have too much bone loss then your teeth can become loose and you may loose them. The best thing is treatment , the sooner the better, so that you do not loose your teeth. Your dentist may refer you to a periiodontist, a specialist in gum diseases for this problem.
