A.Oral health expert
There are many, many causes of periodontitis. If you brush and floss regularly it is unlikely that poor oral hygiene is the cause. Sleeping with your mouth open should not contribute to the problem.
If you are very concerned, my advice would be to see a periodontist as well- he/she specializes in periodontal problems.
