Hello. I am 50 yrs old and was treated for severe periodontitis in Feb 2008. I already have overcrowded teeth and they are now protruding because of drifting. In addition I was told I suffer from bruxism. I have always had dental checkups and been assured “everything was ok” in spite of complaing about recession around a crown an pain on biting. I am destroyed by how my teeth now look and am suffering panic attacks and depression. All this was a huge shock as I had no idea. I want some restorative work, but my new dentist has suggested I think about orthodontics instead. I’m not sure the teeth will have a good appearance even if I endure it as they are now yellowing with large gaps. I have nearly sent myself mad looking at solutions on the web and am terrified of choosing the wrong dentist after a catalogue of poor treatment in the past and also am not in a postion to pay a colossal amount of money. Am I doomed to dentures? Thank you.
