I am 40 years old and have been told I have periodontal disease - my dentist is going to do a scaling and root planing - another dentist told me my teeth are loose but I dont feel like they are. This has scared me because I dont want my teeth dropping out! I am going to keep my mouth spotless after my scaling and cleaning but want to know has anyone else been told their teeth are loose and they dont feel like they are? Is it too late for me lol?
My gum disease cure. I am thirty years old. When I was 27 I was told that I had advanced periodontal disease. At the time I had been reading about Australian Jarrah honey. I began flossing my teeth with it, pushing the honey deep down into the periodontal pockets. I was flossing three or four times a day and within weeks my gums had stopped bleeding. The pockets slowly began to close up. Three years on I a virtually pocket free. I only have one small pocket remaining. The worst one I had is now about a third of the size it used to be. Over the last three years I have had no cavities develop. If you cannot get jarrah honey, find the most medicinal honey available in your country, or E mail me and I may be able to help. It is also a good idea to look at why the disease developed in the first place eg, vitamin c deficiency. Good luck.
I have "moderate-to-advanced" periodontitis. I've been told I had a tooth that was very loose, but it doesn't really feel like it. I think dentists have a different standard of determining what's lose than we do.
I am getting over a major tooth infection and some of my teeth have been feeling slightly loose lately, but I'm not sure how much that's a false sensation. See my comment to Heather on this forum, re: dentures.
I moderate an almost inactive forum and write a column on it with lots of info called "My Periodontitis Diary":
what cause periodontal disease is plaque (food + bacteria that live in our mouth) when this plaque stay for a long time near thegums it cause inflamation on the gums and inflamation cause bon loss and bleeding. Removing this plaque daily with the floss prevents periodontal disease formation a progression, that medical honey it is not the one that get rid of the periodontal disease ,the thing is that when you floss with that honey you are FLOSSING the plaque away at the same time so relieving your gums from what is causing the inflamation.
And NO dont use bee honey because it contains sugar and you will be nourishing the bacterias so you will end with more periodontal disease and also a lot of cavities.
To all who think they may have the symptons of gum disease here are my tips
1.If you smoke give up and this will help in your treatment.
2. Get a good dentist who you want to devise a treatmant plan with, it will cost but I think keeping your teeth is the bigger cost.
3. Eat anything with Vitamin A,C,D and E.
4. Get an electric toothbrush , use a sensitive toothpaste start off with flossing but Te-Pe are better to use but make sure they fit your teeth.Get a good mouth wash and use uptwice a day.
5. Start with the treatment plan, deep pocket descaling, no pain means no gain and start to aim to reduce the pocket sizes, bleeding and plaque.
6. Extra advise brush straight after eating, flush also by drinking water and when not possible use gum recognised by the dentist board.
7. Finally give it time.
I have been having traetment now for 6 months the results are fantastic I halved the gum disease and reduced plaque and my teeth do not bleed anymore. I have further treatment to go and I want to be 100% free of gum disease and it will probably take another 6 months.
Good Luck , don't give up it could cost you your smile
About a year ago I was diagnosed with periodontal disease. Iâd always had receding gums, but now I had pockets that were 4s and 5s. What really shocked me is that now I had to go to the dentist every three months for cleanings that cost over $800 since I had no insurance. YIKES!!! My friend has periodontal disease in her family and had managed to improve hers by using a pick, so that gave me hope. But it was way too hard for me to keep up with. You basically pick into the pockets with one of those rubber-tip thingies. Anyway! I researched it and decided to try this peppermint oil stuff. Itâs natural and easy to use. You just brush with it. That and flossing after every meal turned my disease around in less than three months. I donât have perfect gums, but I no longer have deep enough pockets to need the cleanings. And no more sensitive teeth or bleeding/swollen gums.
I'm 40year old and I have a severe periodontal disease.
It is a diagnosis of periodontal specialists. They recommended only one way treatment- extraction all my teeth and install all mouth implants. I just wandering-is it dentistry of 21 century or cave men's method of treatment?
Maybe dentists like/looking for huge amount work, so for good money? Is it only way of modern dentistry?
I am a dental hygienist and work for very conservative dentists. We suggest dental cleaning every 3 month for our patients with perio problems. On a daily basis do the following: brush at least twice a day using Colgate Total(it's the best antibacterial toothpaste) brush for 2mins. If possible, buy an Oral B electric toothbrush (they start at $20). Replace your brush every 3 months.
Rinse 2x/day with Listerine Antiseptic full strength. If your pockets are deeper than 4mm, use a Water Pik daily - this will flush out the pocket. Interdental stimulators are good to use and there are a variety of them on the market -i.e. go betweens, stimudents, proxibrushes etc. Try to eliminate bleeding by continually cleaning your gums.
My Periodental disease, and finally getting it fixed :)
Hi, im 30 and after realising my two front bottom teeth were loose and had bleed for years, im just too scared of dentists and am paying for it
After a Xray he seen one tooth to the side of the two loose ones had come out of the socket, it wasnt loose and i was shocked ! So as a result i had my four lower front teeth extracted and had a metal and fibreglass plate made up that that hooks around my canines. I have to have it adjusted cause my gum is receding which is annoying because im a busy lady lol and i cant eat or chew gum with it :/ Kissing etc is fine though
Its ok though, it looks 100% real and when i get this problem fixed and braces after ( and a boob job to boot ! haha Ive been saving for 10 years Im going to have to save again maybe $6,000 aud to get a dental implant cause this plate is excuse the french.. shite lol but after all this cash and frustration.... Im gunna be one happy woman/mum
i went to the Orthodontist and the greedy man still took my consultation fee, he straight up looked in my mouth he said i needed to see a Periodontist to fix the four front top gum before any work could be done. I wanted to talk about what type of ones i could get This Invasiglin or metal, whats faster ?? etc etc He didnt say anything just pushed me out saying i needed to return to my dentist $180 bucks for diddly squat and i was cranky at the dentist for not telling me this at the last scale and clean.
So i have an $280 appointment on the 22nd of Feb 2012. Will a Periodontist So i'll be back to tell you what happens.
I honestly wouldnt ignore it, as im learning.... Tooth loss is imminent, it might take 5 years or 20 years but it will happen.
I suggest getting a referral from a doctor to a periodontist to get it fixed because even though you may find things to reduce the symptoms, it wont go away without actually getting it fixed It suxs and its expensive, but you have to weight up keeping your teeth by saving up, or ....... looking like un upside down vampire like me at the moment lol
Hope your well x
I am seeing a periodontist at the end of the month,still searching for information to be prepared and ask as many questions as possible. I know I will loose some teeth and this is not nice since I moved to Norway and still search for a full time job, and have 3 small kids. Who will employ a woman with no teeth in the front, not to mention the expenses:(
Few years ago, my father had early signs of periodonitis, of course back then we thouth it was only some kind of mild infection or something... He ignored that, actually, we all did. After nine months, his gums begin extensively to bleed, and redness was very aggressive. Soon begin first appointments to the dentist, which followed intesive few-years-long therapy... Until today, he did not cured his gums from periodontits, but he drasticly slowed disease's progression...
Hi, Suggesting you to maintain a good oral hygiene , Gum Diseases depending on the damage and infection can be treated by various Periodontal Treatments including - Scaling, Deep Cleaning, Root Planing, Flap Surgery, Bone and Soft Tissue Grafting . Gum Infections can be prevented by regular Brushing, Flossing and Professional cleaning .
Gum disease is a disease that can be treated several different ways. Depending on how advanced your gum disease is, that will determine what type of treatment you need. If it has been determined that you need periodontal surgery, there is a new treatment out involving a laser. Laser gum surgery is virtually painless and requires no stitches!
