I am a 22 yo female diagnosed with moderate periodontal disease. I gum bleeds when I brush so I went to see a dentist. My dentist told me I've lost 25% of the bone and I have 4-6mm pockets all of my mouth. I got root planning and scaling. I am super nervous about gum recession and losing my teeth in the future since I am only in my early 20s. I've notice black triangles between my upper front teeth. I am really conscious about them and don't know what to do. Does anyone have similar experience in a young age? What is the prognosis for moderate periodontal disease? And how can I fix the black triangles between my teeth?
