Receeded Gum

Hi All,

I'm in a bit of a predicament at the moment. For the past year I've had what I would say looks like a really bad receeded gum, it's on one of my bottom front teeth so really noticable but it doesn't cause me any pain whatsoever. 

I moved cities quite a while ago now but never got around to finding a dentist before the whole covid situation blew up so I can't just go and get it checked out. 

I'm aware that it might have gotten to the point where only dental intervention can reverse the damage already done but does anyone have any suggestions of how I can keep on top of it now and prevent any more damage before I'm able to visit a dentist? 

TIA

    Dentists are open and operating now. It should be possible for you to find somewhere to get it looked at.


    How to find a dentist.
    1. Get recommendations from friends/family/neighbours/etc.
    2. Once you have a short-list, VISIT the practices - dont just phone. Go on the pretext of getting a Practice Leaflet.
    3. Assess the helpfulness of the staff and the level of the facilities.
    4. Only book initial appointment when you find a place you are happy with.

    Mine is only for seeing emergencies and "vulnerable patients" one and half days per week! Everything else is being continually re-booked three months on.
