There are several causes for gum recession disease. Inherited traits such as thin gums and mal positioned teeth. Mal positioned teeth as a result of previous orthodontic treatment, clenching/grinding or by nervous habits that include putting foreign objects in your mouth contribute to the disease as well.
How do I prevent gum recession disease?
Make sure you properly brush and floss your teeth twice a day. When brushing your teeth use only ultrasoft toothbrushes. Make sure your bite is comfortable and has been adjusted if necessary.
