I am worried that I have gum disease
Im worried that my teeth are going to fall out because I’m scared that i might have gum disease. my teeth from the bottom are separating a little from each other i usually had teeth that were all together and never had space between them. 3 from the top part of my mouth feel lightly wobbly and my mouth feels a little sore. this usually happened when I’m about to go to sleep after i brush my teeth. i now am brushing my teeth 2 times a day morning and before i go to bed. its ben a 2-3 I’ve been using corsodyl . i feel like my teeth are going to slowly fall out. I’m frightened and when i think about them falling out i start crying. I’m 26 years old and i don’t know what to do
The only way to allay your fears is to let a dentist have a look , otherwise you are just guessing and imagining the worst .
I don’t personally recommend Corsodyl as it often stains badly , and even if you have gum disease it will not be of any real use.
The treatment for gum disease is professional cleaning , preferably from a dental hygienist , with effective home brushing and cleaning in between the teeth .
Keep up with the good brushing and perhaps explore getting some small brushes called TEPE to clean in between them
Hope this helps
