Nicorette and receding gums
I have been using nicorette with success for the last 7 weeks. I am only using about 3 pieces of the 4mg dose a day now. About 2 weeks ago I noticed that my upper molars on both the right and left side of my mouth now have the root exposed. I have always been very good about going to the dentist (I go every 3 months for cleanings). But I am rather freaked out that my gums are receding and the root is exposed. Has anyone seen this type of reaction to nicorette gum use? Nothing else has changed in my life that i can say has caused this rapid gum problem...any thoughts?

I have not seen that before! In most cases gum recession is caused by the folllowing:

1- Age
2- Improper brushing
3- Periodontl disease (gum disease)
4- Smoking

You should have the area checked by your dentist, and he will be able to let you know if this recession is related to the use of the nicorette or not.
