Healthy gum tissue is essential for keeping your smile vital. Your gums help your teeth remain in their proper places, protect your tooth roots from decay and improve the cosmetic value of your smile. Your gums also defend your body from oral bacteria that can lead to periodontal disease and potentially serious problems with your general health. So, the right amount of gum tissue is essential for a number of different reasons. But while too little gum tissue can be problematic, too much gum tissue can also create issues.
