Well this is just crazy! I’m your age and having weird gum issues as well. And I also brush and floss regularly. Does anyone else in your family have it? Might also be a vitamin deficiency. Make sure you’re getting enough nutrients!
Sometimes brushing too hard will make your gums start to recede. That’s what was beginning to happen to me so my dentist had me switch to an extra soft toothbrush and it really helped. I would be in a hurry and didn’t realize brushing faster and harder didn’t help make them healthier. 😜
Get a second or third opinion. Don’t ever believe what one doctor tells you. I have an in law that has receding gums and it was because he was doing too much dental hygiene. He’s now getting gum surgery adding extra tissue to his gums. I once switched to a new dentist, who told me I would need $12000 worth of dental work. Went back to my regular dentist (who I saw regularly) and he looked at the list of “what I needed” and couldn’t find anything wrong. It’s now seven years later and have only had one crown put in. One doctor was discovered who was giving chemo therapy to patients that didn’t have cancer. One hospital was doing heart surgery on people that didn’t need it. DON’T EVER TRUST ONE SINGLE DOCTOR!
