I was diagnosed with periodontitis about 5 years ago, my dentist then did a deep clean and said my pockets weren't too bad. I have had regular hygenist appointments since then and she has always said they are ok, in fact, last time I saw her she said they looked good. Then lockdown hit and I feel they have deteriorated dramatically I suddenly have massive gaps either side of my two front teeth and just know things aren't good. I did have them cleaned by a hygenist ( a new one)on Monday and she didn't really say anything except come back in three months instead of six. My dentists in the last few years have been next to useless and I can't see one at the moment anyway. I think I need to see an expert but am terrified they will say there is nothing they can do. Anybody had similar and been saved? I am in the UK by the way , near Birmingham.
