I notice some gum recession. You will get a better evaluation with clinical exam and x-rays. Unfortunately we can't do that on this platform.

I notice you may have 4 wisdom teeth (UR, LR, UL, LL) including possible retained root on UR (image is not very clear). LR wisdom tooth is damaging the tooth in front of it. You also have a lot of tartar (calculus) build up and need deep cleanings. Your bone has slight recession. I cannot see in-between teeth with the pano x-ray. You need bite-wings to diagnose interproximals.

It is a sign of gum disease and or gum trauma (improper brushing). With the amount of tartar buildup, you may not have had a cleaning for a while. You can't neglect your gums.

Understand. Your condition is not bad. Just get your teeth checked and cleaned. Thank you for your military service. I was an USAF dentist.
