    Do you think I have gum disease?(photo)

    Im 18 and i went through two months where my dental hygeine wasnt ideal.. i sometimes fell asleep without brushing my teeth an didn't floss regularly... I'm back on routine (brushing/flossing twice a day... sometimes at lunch too). However, I think my bottom gums are receding... and im freaking out... It doesn't bleed when i brush or floss, and there isnt any sort of pain... Hopefully,the picture is clear enough to observe.
    I go to the dentistl every 6months... my last visit was the first week of January.. and my next visit will be in June
    Is itgum disease? If so mild or severe?
    Thank you
