Greetings all first post .
Having been diagnosed with a diseased gum , i am having difficulties with a personal treatment idea . Over the past few week's i have made several visits to my NHS dentist because i have three noticeable mobile teeth , including fronts , this has alarmed me as my regular hygiene has always been fairly reasonable . Then i got an ache resulting in a shifting tooth , took some penicillin for an infection .
Having a professional hygienist session i believe this to be the start of some help . But now i am having problems trying to eat , preventing putting any pressure on these weak teeth, and of what food to buy that won't be too tuff . I really don't know where to go next , the dentist say, s he can pull them but I'm 47 and would prefer to keep as long as or at best could tighten up .
But for now my main concern is the effect this is all having , Do I now visit a Doctor discussing all this or possibly make an appointment with a "periodontal clinic" , i can not expect this is available through the NHS funds . But what to do , i am in real moments of despair and have been back n forth to my dentist .
this is what brought me to the forum , thank's if anyone knows where might be a good place to start , my front uppers have shifted and are mobile but my dentist already has observed this . i can't eat and have been given no ongoing plan .
I guess what I'm asking is can i go to the GP and get a doctor referral to a gum specialist .
i don't want to see my front tooth go
thank's all !
