I can’t tell you how glad I am to have found this forum. Everyone seems so supportive here! I want to start by saying that I definitely have gum disease to some extent- which is why my dentist did a deep cleaning back in April. I go back to the dentist in November and will probably have it done again instead of a regular cleaning. A couple of my bottom teeth do feel a little wobbly though I have heard that can be normal. I believe I also have a slight case of receding gums as well. I am curious as to what the difference is between gingivitis and periodontitis because I’m almost certain I have one- just not sure how to distinguish between the two. The picture may help but not sure if it’s possible to really tell from just a picture. Was also wondering if anyone has experience with either of these conditions and what they did to rectify the situation? I’m trying to get a jump start on getting healthy teeth and gums again before seeing the dentist in November. Thanks in advance everyone ?
