Receding Gums

Receding gums can be caused by brushing your teeth too hard ­ - but all too often gum disease (gingivitis) is to blame.

You may have gum disease if:

  • your gums are swollen or sore
  • your gums bleed when you brush your teeth
  • you have bad breath (halitosis).

If you have any of these symptoms, see your dentist for a professional check-up as soon as possible. Gingivitis can be treated with antibacterial products such Eludril mouthwash and Elgydium toothpaste.

Both Eludril and Elgydium contain chlorhexidine - ­ recommended by oral healthcare professionals as the gold standard gum disease treatment.

Receding Gums: The Warning Signs

Gum recession is often a gradual process and so may not be initially obvious. It is more prevalent among people aged over 40. Watch out for the following early symptoms:

  • Are your teeth becoming more sensitive, particularly to hot or very cold food? (The Elgydium range includes Elgydium Sensitive to ease the pain)
  • Can you feel a ‘notch’ at the gumline on any of your teeth?
  • Do any of your teeth look longer than normal?
  • Is the part of the tooth near the gum line a different colour to the rest of the tooth?
  • Do you have any dental cavities below the gum line?
