I have been told by a couple of dentists and periodontists that I need periodontal gum surgery for my 2 bottom front teeth. They say I could lose the teeth in a matter of a few years, and show me scary pictures of what could happen.
I've been told this for 6 years now and haven't noticed it get worse or better.
So I am wondering: is the periodonist just telling me this because it is his specialty and he makes money on it (like the oral surgeon who said I need my wisdom teeth out when my dentist said my wisdom teeth are just fine, just need fillings)?
I am mainly leery of it because any surgery requires antibiotics afterwords and I already have antibiotic induced gut problems. Then again, I could lose my teeth then have to get implants, which would require antibiotics after that surgery, so I'd rather keep my own teeth thank you. I'd also like to get it out of the way while I am in the middle of gut healing so I can keep on working to heal my gut after this round of antibiotics.
*Sigh* what to do. I know it is so un natural all this dental work I am getting, but I have no choice as even with a nutrient dense sugar free diet I still am cavity prone. For me it is just genetic, my grandmother had lost almost all but her canine teeth and had partials by age 60!
