Not only that, but there are plenty of harmful bacteria that live underneath your fingernails, which you certainly don't want to bite into. Keep your nails trimmed short and there will be less to chew on, and less space for bacteria to live as well. If that doesn't work, the same products used to stop thumb sucking in children will make your finger nails taste just as terrible.

A cause of receding gums that sometimes doesn't get mentioned is aggressive brushing. All of the parts of your mouth are naturally and inherently fragile and can be sensitive if you are too rough.

This practice can lead to receding gums. Ensure that you are gentle enough with your teeth and gums when you do your daily cleaning.

In the event that you do start to experience tender or irritated gums, you need to take the proper steps to prevent further issues from occurring.
