Periodontal disease is the most common reason for gum recession. Also called gum disease, this dental health problem is caused when plaque and calculus build up along the gumline causing an infection. Without proper oral hygiene, the bacteria in the plaque will slowly eat away at your gums, causing them to recede.
Other causes of gum recession include incorrect brushing and flossing (for example, using the wrong toothbrush or too much force), tooth grinding and clenching, or wearing ill-fitting partial dentures.

At home, you should adopt careful dental hygiene habits. Brush at least twice a day and floss daily. Consult with your dental healthcare provider to learn what type of toothbrush and toothpaste is best for you. And make sure to get regular cleanings and exams. You may also benefit from a deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) or other preventive treatment.
