Gum recession can be caused by a number of factors, but periodontal disease, often referred to as gum disease, is the most common source. This build-up of bacteria can cause pockets around the teeth to form and breed more bacteria, triggering an infection that slowly eats away at the soft tissue and bone surrounding your teeth.
