    Hi ladies im 27/28 weeks pregnant and noticed i have 1 spot of receeding gums near back teeth where gum has gone and left a hole between teeth :/
    Does anyone know if this is something the NHS will treat? Is it common in pregnancy or am i doing something wrong? Never had it before -_-

    I had the start of receding gums a few years ago and the dentist recommended Corsodyl toothpaste and the medicated mouthwash. It tasted horrendous but it sorted out the problem.
    If I were you I would book in an appointment for your dentist ASAP.

    Thanks, i am going to get some Corsodyl. I was a bit horrified. I only went dentist 2 weeks ago so pretty confused as well. It is definately a hole where pink gum would "triangle" downward.
