So here's the thing, I'm 13 and have noticed that my gums bleed when I brush my teeth. They also seem to be receding and pulling away from my teeth (especially the bottom ones). Whenever I brush it is tender and hurts. I've poked around on the internet and I think I may have gum disease.. I'm not quite sure how to act on this as all the advice on gum disease tells you to get medicine or visit the dentist, but I can't buy things like antibiotics because (obviously) they are not allowed to sell them to me. I don't know how to get an appointment at the dentist on my own either. I'm scared to tell my mum though.. I'm extremely worried that if I carry on keeping it quiet, it will get worse and I could lose teeth. I don't know how far through the stages of gum disease I am. I really could do with some advice. Thanks, Daisy.
