I have had all but one of my lower molars removed within the past year. I take care of my teeth very well, have since I was little.
It starts at the gumline, then works it's way around the tooth... anyone know what can cause this?
I have been told by 3 dentist that I do not have periodontal disease or gum disease. :confused:

I have been told by 3 dentist that I do not have periodontal disease or gum disease. :confused:im going through the same thing. its so embarassing im 26 years old and have lost almost all my bottom molars they just keep rotting from the gumline then cracking resulting in extraction. im not a drug attic nor do i have eating disorders or anything else. i brush my teeth regularly and i swear the brushing is erasing my enamel. i heard of something called cavies or demineralization that just may be the issue here. lack of good dental insurance doesnt help either and im far from rich. but something gotta give

  • I'm sixteen and have the same problem, except I know that I have peridontis disease. Mine is genetic and its a little daunting to find out that I will lose all my teeth no matter what I do. My parents say I'm young enough to put the money into saving them, but the problem is.....I will still eventually lose all my teeth. I brush them two times a day and yet they are still decaying. my dentist wont even let me talk to him, he just fills in the gaping holes and continues on... So, not saying that I am an expert, because I am definitly not, either your dentists are lying to you or you need to ask them what may be going on. It could be something entriely different that may be linked to peridontis. But, the symptoms that you described, starting at the gum and working from there sounds just like it. Good luck on finding out whats wrong.
