I am 55 years old male and I am experiencing gum recession which is more sensitive to cold and hot water. On consulting a Dentist here in Shillong I was asked to undergo filling instead of gum treatment. Is there any solution to gum recession medically? I shall be highly obliged if you could prescribed medication.

Yes there is a treatment for gum recession pls use Himalaya Hi ora sensitive mouthwash two time a day and warm saline gargle in bed time. U can also use gum paint or extract of aloe vera after 4 days.
It might be due to brushing and there might be shallow cavity which needs filling, and if other problem is there, then you need to consult gum specialist i.e. Periodontist.
