I Have Lost 3 Teeth In The Last Few Years. What Options For Gum Disease Do I Have Other Than Regular Cleaning?

Q.
Hi Dr Gambroudes. I have gum disease and see my dentist every 3 months to have them cleaned. This is having very little effect and I currently have 2 loose teeth. I have already lost 3 in the last few years. What options do I have and what else can be done as no treatment other than the regular cleaning is being offered. I’m at my wits end and just want them all out! I’m worried that I will end up with no teeth. Please advise me. Thanks.

Hello and thank you for contacting me. I would advise you to seek help from a periodontist in your area for a second opinion. It’s difficult to say what else can done without speaking to you in person and taking scans, etc. Is there a particular reason you have weak gums? If you would like further information in the meantime, I would point you toward this website which could help you understand the process of gum disease a little better. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Dr Marcus Gambroudes.
