My stitches done for gum grafting have become loose. What can I do?

Hi, gums recede for a variety of reasons. You may be using a hard bristle toothbrush which erodes the gum tissue, you might have had orthodontics which can cause tooth recession when the teeth are moved. Some people have thick tissues which tend to pocket when there is stress placed on the gums, other people have thinner gums which tend to recede if there is pressure placed on the gums. When I mean pressure, it can be plaque accumulation, overzealous cleaning, etc. Hope this helps.
