I Am 22 And Suffering From Periodontal Disease, Please Help!

Q.
Hi, i have periodontitis , i have lost 5 teeth and will soon be losing a few more. I wondered if you could advise me on something please? I am 22 years old and therefore (obviously) very young and would like some advice and how to move forward. I have very little amount of gum and hardly any bone left in the areas where the teeth were taken out from. My dentist has not been very reassuring so i would like to know what i can do to save my remaining teeth and i would like to know of any procedures that are available in my situation. I am currently wearing dentures and have been for the last two years but would like something permanent.I don’t even know how I got into this predicament but it’s really getting me down. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Hello and thank you very much for your question. In order to deal with your problem I think you should try to find a local gum specialist to assess you as it sounds like you’ll need complex treatment. Sorry I couldn’t help any further, good luck.
