Teeth Grinding Causes Gum Recession

Teeth grinding causes gum recession in two ways primarily. The first way that teeth grinding causes gum recession is that it damages your soft tissue. The second way is that it loosens teeth. When your teeth get loose, you develop periodontal pockets around your teeth and subsequently you get bacteria in there and periodontal disease. It has a very profound effect on your dentition.
