Hi Anon,

The bone and gum loss is a result of severe periodontal disease. I am so sorry you have lost a tooth because of this. Please read more information on this here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002051/

If you have dental insurance, then you may be able to see if there is anything that you can do to prevent loss of your other teeth. But please, do try to get help-- if not from this dentist, from another.

Best Wishes,

Rosa

Dear Anonymous,

While I'm not a doctor and don't know what your symptoms are other than blood in your mouth-- you may have Periodontal disease or gingivitis. Gingivitis as it worsens will progress to Periodontal disease, causing more and more bleeding due to the bacteria in your mouth and ultimately result in tooth and bone loss.

If you have yet to go to the Dentist for this, please do. If you have and this is not the case, then please see your doctor.

Best,

Rosa
