Q.

Gums

Ek het n probleem met my gums wat weg trek van my tande af of sal ek se krimp en dan gaan my sesitiewe deel van my tande oop wat onder my gums toe moet wees oop. Is daar iets wat ek kan doen om dit te kry om op te hou krimp en om dalk weer terug te gaan oor die tande. Al wat my tandarts altyd se is ek moet sagter borsel en n elektriese tandeborsel gebruik. Ek gebruik nou al vir jare n eleksriese tandeborsel en die probleem hou maar net aan. Moet ek dalk iemand anders gaan sien? Hoop u kan help. Dankie

You may have periodontal disease. Did the dentist take x-rays of your teeth? if not ,have them taken
