Gum recession is a common problem. Your patients may not notice their recession or believe it to be an issue because it happens gradually. Many patients accept recession to be a normal part of aging when in fact it is not. Most common causes for recession are plaque, trauma, and aggressive tooth brushing among other reasons. Please consider gingival grafting before treating exposed root surfaces with composite. Once composite is placed, gingival tissues will not adhere. Abrasions or decay can be up to 2mm in depth and still be successfully grafted over with gingival tissue.
