I have severe periodontitis in my #31 molar and mild periodontitis in my lower gums. The pocket on the #31 molar is about 9mm, possibly 12mm, deep.
Is there any way to save this tooth or is extraction with a titanium implant the best and only option? The dentist will use a panorama scan of the mouth as opposed to a CBCT scan. Is there any additional risk factors in using this method to avoid nerves?
Also, what is the best way to reverse periodontitis in the gums via home-care (in addition to regular cleaning). Thank you.
