Why bone loss and gum disease when I floss every day?
I brush my teeth whenever I eat, and I floss thoroughly every day, yet my dentist says that I have some bone loss and gum disease. A long time ago I had 4's and 5's with the dental depth tool, and when instructed by the dentist to floss every day and on how to brush, they went down to 2's and 3's. So what happened now? I'll be 75 in two months.
My regular bone density is fine, but not my the bones in my mouth. Thank you.
