is that even what it is called?!? Anyways..I am starting to get scared...how bad is this? I had a really bad bite (only 1 back tooth touched) and currently have braces to fix some of the problems..but now I am worried about my gum line. I am afraid that if my gum pulls back any farther that my tooth is going to fall out! What can I do to help my gums?! My ortho gave me phos-flur-gel....is this helping or making it worse?! Could my braces/teeth shifting be causing some of the problem?
