What is level 5 gum disease?

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010
Q.
Hi there, I went to my dentist and she said I have quite bad gum disease, sge said level 5? what does that mean? she gave me a deep clean which really hurt, and my gums were saw for the rest of the day. she said she will refer me to a gum specialist and I have to go back in two weeks for more deep cleaning. I have a gap in my front teeth now and I am pushing them and worried they are loose, I am getting myself in a state, will I save my teeth? can gums and teeth get stronger, I am flossing with brushes and cleaning my teeth and using proper mouth wash but I am really worried. thanks,

Should I have a gum graft or a bone graft?

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010
Q.
Dear Patel, I am currently dealing with gum disease, my gum line has dropped/recessed badly and also causing space/hole in between of teeth and bone lost. My periodontist has suggest to have a gum graft for the gum recession. I was wondering if I should instead to have the bone graft or just the gum graft? In addition, does the gum graft will close up the hole in between the teeth? If not, what are my other opinion for that? Many thanks.

What can be done for lost tooth likely due to bone disease?

Monday, March 15th, 2010
Q.
I had a tooth extracted last week. It detached itself from the jawbone when I bit on something fairly soft, and I understand this could indicate that the bone is diseased (I’m a 58 year old female). As I live in Germany, I’m due to see my dentist in a week. What issues should I discuss with him? Thanks, in advance Susan Lawson,
