Lori’s Condition Gets Worse

Periodontal disease starts with gingivitis that progresses and if left untreated, can cause a list of health problems. Lori was diagnosed with this almost ten years ago, but she was unable to afford the treatment that could save her teeth. Since then, it’s only gotten worse. Over the last three years, the rapidly advancing disease has caused her gums to massively recede and the bones in her upper and lower jaws to deteriorate. Lori has lost several teeth in the process, which is a major source of anxiety and has greatly impacted her self-esteem.
