Hi, I've have inflammation and very red gums. My dentist said I had some very mild gum disease. Now the inflammation and swelling and completely subsided. My gums now look very reseeded. Is this a common thing to happen?
Assistant: Are you experiencing any swelling? Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss?
Customer: They used to buy now the swelling has gone they don't bleed
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No, I'm pretty healthy

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Yes this can happen to anyone

It is actually a common problem with which patients report to a dentist

So it is nothing concerning

You just need to have a check at your dental hygiene regularly

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Will they continue to reseed?

Are you saying they continue to swell and regrow?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I know that gums are unable to regrow. I just hope my gums don't shrink anymore

No they don,t shrink

It is just that once the inflammation settle they just shrink back to normal

This is normal and not a worrying sign
