Hi Mark. I have been told that I have advanced periodontitis. The dentist has said this is idiosyncratic and mentioned my body fighting it’s own bacteria? I know that many members of my father’s side of the family have had problems with their gums. He has also said I will gradually lose my teeth ( My bottom back 3rd molar is already loose) and would not be a suitable candidate for implants. I would like to know my options i.e bone graft etc. I am 37 year old ex-smoker.
