Hello. I was curious to know if this looks like the start of receeding gums in the lower front teeth. I am having a hard time figuring out if my gums look lower or not. My last trip to the dentist was in September and they didnt say anything to me about receeding during the cleaning and I have been working hard to keep up on brushing twice a day and flossing. I'm hoping I am just being paranoid especially because I no longer have dental insurance. I won't be able to see a dentist for another few months as is so in the meantime I would love some opinions.

Gum tissue surrounding the teeth shrinks back or wears away. As this happens, the lower parts and roots of the teeth are uncovered. Gums can shrink so much that tooth roots are almost completely exposed.

Thats why Im so worried. I have no dental insurance now and no money to cover costs of fixing my teeth.

As far as I am aware I am brushing properly. I will get a softer toothbrush though and see if that helps. Only issue is I am away working for the next few months. Thanks for the reply.

What is high frenum attachment? Also do you happen to know the cost of something like this? I have no coverage and am only 21 so I don't have any money to fix this.
