When I was a teenager, I did not take good care of my teeth. I never flossed; no mouthwash rinses. I only brushed my teeth in the morning and before going to bed at night. As a result, I now have cavities and build up. When I went to the dentist to have my filled, he said I have some bone loss in the lower right side of my jaw.
After a few days, I went to a periodontist. I asked her about my bone loss. She looked at my and said there was no bone loss. She also checked for pockets and did not find any. I am confused now. Should I go to another regular dentist or to s periodontist? I have been brushing and flossing regularly since I learned about my cavities. I wanted to make sure that there was really no bone loss in that area. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
