Is there anything I can do to prevent further gum recession, and do I need to get old crowns replaced?

Friday, August 13th, 2010
Q.
Hi, I have 3 front top crowns which are over 25 years old! one of them – the gum has receded slightly and there’s a gap which sometimes during the day is catching slightly on the inside of my lip. im absolutely terrified of the dentist, i can still remember the whole afternoon in the chair getting them done. Can i do anything to halt any further gum receding, am i brushing too hard, has the crown moved, do i need to get it replaced. thank you so much.,
