Tooth Decay

Look guys, I know I have been told many times that mine was a low risk exposure (protected vaginal w/ condom slip, and receiving unprotected oral). And I've been told that my gingivitis getting worse is not a ARS. But since this started about two weeks after exposure, and know I can see the on the sides of my teeth, there's some bone loss going on there. I read a posting saying that anxiety can cause that by supressing your inmune system, but I find it hard to blame it on my stress/anxiety. Thanks for being patient, since I don't wanna get annoying in here, but I promise it will not last more than 3 months .... I have only have 5 more weeks to go.

Does anyone in your family have bad teeth. This can be a part of it. Also, being that I just came from the dentist, how often do you go and get them cleaned. You may also just be brushing them wrong. You are better off speaking to your dentist.

stress and anxiety causes alot of teeth grinding which causes presure on bone that is pretty weak especially with gingervitis going on, do you know about 80 percent of adults over 35 have some kind of gingervitis. just a thought for you to think about, one thing you are forgetting about hiv, is that in most cases it takes 6-10 years for it to damage an immune system. and ars usually disappears after one or two weeks. love and peace
