Posted on 6/22/2020 by Lanier Valley Dentistry
Snoring is an issue in many households. In fact, 90 million Americans snore at least occasionally, and over 37 million Americans snore nearly every night. Snoring can lead to a host of problems, but did you know that snoring can cause problems with your gums? Here is some information about how snoring could lead to receding gums.
