gum recession?

#1 Post by lesley »

I have noticed that my gums are being pushed up...and I have only had invisalign for 7 weeks so I can only imagine what it will be like after a year.

Has anyone else had this? How do you stop it? I have tried brushing my teeth less hard..

Wow I never had that happen to me. Are you sure the tooth isn't just becoming longer making it look like the gum is pushed up (its the only thing I can think of)? Depending on when your next app is maybe you should call your ortho.

Good luck!

Definently show it to your orthodontist at the next appointment. Be sure you're flossing every day, and using Listerine. I have a slight amount of recession on my lower teeth because I got a little lazy with flossing.
