See teeth through gums

Okay basically I imagine the first row of my teeth at the front, now if you look behind them the top part of the gum near the teeth looks alright but underneath that the gums have gone and I can see through the gum that is left and see my teeth. It's freaking me out! I don't have much money but I know I have to see a dentist about it. I don't know what it is though. I've been trying to brush my teeth a lot and flosh and use mouthwash and stuff but it looks just as bad. I need help knowing what this is and what to do!

Re: See teeth through gums

I'm not sure I'm visualizing this correctly, but it sounds like receding gums? That's often a symptom of gum disease (which is very common but can cause tooth loss). I would say a visit to the dentist is definitely in order. Hang in there!
