periodontal disease is incurable, but treatable and maintainable. You must be diligent about following treatment protocols and maintenance schedules, and home care instructions. The key is keeping the bacterial count down by proper oral hygiene and professional periodontal treatment at your dentist's or periodontist's office.

As you already know, the non loss is a result of active periodontitis. So if you treat the disease, the bone loss will stop. A dentist or periodontist will provide you with treatment, but know that you must maintain strict daily home care to stay disease free.

If the teeth and roots of the teeth are kept clean you won't have any more bone loss. That means increased frequency of professional care and improved home care and diet. Talk to your dentist and hygienist for the details.
