no teeth makes one look older


I had gingivitus and although am fastidious about cleaning my teeth it slowly developed into peridontal disease. I am managing it with regular cleanings at hte hygenist but am very worried as am only 37. I fear my teeth will all fall out in 10 years. healthy teeth make one look so much younger. Could you give me any advice?
