I’ve not posted a question on PPMS forum before, normally chat on everyday living. I was diagnosed with PPMS last august
I go to the dentist regular and look after my teeth…dentist always tells me my oral hygiene is good. The dentist has told me I have peridonitis ( bone decay in jaw ) and will need ongoing treatment in order to keep my teeth. I have always had a phobia and nightmares about losing my teeth, so this has upset me
My dentist accepts that having a compromised immune system is a probable factor.
Besides MS, I have psoriatic arthritis and osteoarthitis…also post menopausal ( I’m 58 ) so all these things will have a negative affect on the immune system…I should think!
Do any of you have similar problems with your teeth.? I have asked this question on everyday living but thought there maybe some of you that don’t go on there.
I would be grateful for any feedback
