My anxiety is being triggered and my depression usually comes along with it. Can anybody tell me if the gum recession is really bad here? My hygienist doesnt seem concerned but i am.

Dear jatay,

I do not know much about gum recession, but dental hygienists do. So if you hygienist doesn't seem concerned than you shouldn't be either. If you keep going with cleanings, oral hygiene and prevent brushing too hard, then your gums should stay where they are from now on. If this worries you to the point of triggering your depression, you might want to consider seeking a second opinion from a dentist.

All the best wishes
