Millions of Americans suffer from gum recession, wherein the soft tissue of the oral cavity begins to recede and erode. This can be the result of inflammation-related gum disease (periodontitis), impact trauma, or complications relating to the buildup of bacteria-containing plaque and tartar. Contrarily, millions more suffer from excessive gum exposure; wherein the gumline extends beyond that of its normal limit and covers up the surface of the teeth (often referred to as a gummy smile).
