Hello doctor,

I have periodontal disease and I do not know what had caused it. I do brush daily, floss and mouth wash. I even had those pink pill that showed if you brushed wrong and the results were perfect every time. So I am wondering what caused it. I do have a dead tooth. So I am wondering if I get that fixed, will my gums be healthier?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. As per your history, signs, and, symptoms, it looks like you are having chronic generalized periodontitis. I want to know if you have any loose tooth or teeth, any systemic disease like diabetes, etc. If you are taking any drug for a headache or seizure?

You need immediate hand scaling (oral prophylaxis) two three times in six months. Use mouthwash daily, brushing technique (modified Bass). You can take medication like Metronidazole 400 mg three times daily for a week if you do not have any allergic history to it.
