I am paranoid about receding gums because I have anxiety so I went to the dentist. They said I am good I have mostly 3mm pockets and no bleeding or problem but I have some bone loss but no bid deal.

5 months later I went back to another dentist because I began to worry again. They said yeah I have mostly 3's. She mentioned the bone loss and said it was like 20% bone loss.

Is this "ok" or normal for age 45? And if I have no gum disease, why do I have bone loss?

I heard that 15mm is when you start to risk loosing your tooth. I also heard that if you wash your teeth regularly and properly, and use listerine every time, any pockets you have will start normalizing.

Also, I don't think that "gum disease" causes bone loss, but vice versa?
