This photograph shows the upper teeth of a patient who lost many front teeth from gingivitis. Although some of the gingivitis symptoms were treated, problems still remain due in part to the patient wearing unfitted dentures for a long time.
A problem in this case is due to the fact that there was no integrated diagnose or treatment plan. Most of the gingivitis cases have an initial symptom of shifting teeth and bleeding gums. If you treat only the symptom, gingivitis will worsen, and you will loose your teeth.
