: : My dentist has advised me that I have been brushing too hard and as a result I have a few areas where the gums have receded. What procedures can be done to rectify the problem? How big of a threat does this pose for future tooth loss?

: There isn't much you can do at this point. If it is only minor recession, just keep the area clean, brushing gently. Exposed root areas can decay quickly.
: Should the recession become severe, then you may be referred to a periodontist who can then graft tissue to that site to correct the problem.

Rinsing with peroxide twice daily will fix minor problems--1Tbsp. peroxide to 1/2 cup warm water.
