I have a feeling my gums on my bottom front teeth are receeded because they look lower than my other teeth nearby and theres a gap . I visited a dentist in early september and she didn't mention it she only told me they were really inflamed after being cleaned . Am i just being paranoid ?

You have a labial frenum which is attached at a high position between those incisors. It's not so much that your gums are receding but that the attachment is pulling the gums away. I would go to a periodontist for a possible frenum release.

It can become more of a problem as you get older, and is well worth seeing a periodontist now.
