| | Receding Gums & Grinding Pain!
Hello again everyone,
I am suffering from anxiety because of my teeth and a few other things. I am 30 and my gums are receding some. I do not have gum disease, my problem is heavy brushing with hard brushes. Sadly I did not know this can hurt my teeth and gums so much.
Well, now I can not stop looking at my mouth. I run the a mirror every 30 minutes to check out my gums & teeth. I always try to check out other people's teeth to compare. I think it is mostly because I try to find info on the net and all I find is horror stories that scare me to death. Dentist web sites make it sound like every little thing will cause complete tooth loss.
So like I said I have some receding, mostly on my back uppers and I also have some grind damage from all this stress. SO how long will my teeth last me? Another 10 years? Less? The dentist says my teeth are in good shape, no problems on x-ray and no bone loss.
I am in some pain everyday from grinding & I think a little TMJ. I hate worring about this every minute of everyday.
