In due to start basic on the 18th. In your opinion, am I looking at a high percentage of an MD ?To be honest, yes. A 4 is a sign of significant periodontal disease.
You might want to see if you can get seen by a hygienist soon.
(Can also be linked to heart disease)

Honestly can’t thank you enough for the help and tips. My gums do not bleed when I am brushing, the last 7 weeks I have been using the gum disease mouth wash and toothpaste.JSP950 Annex M
1. Candidates should have:
b. Healthy gums and oral mucosa, with no obvious soft tissue disease or deformity.
In the footnotes it states P8 if the disease can not be stabilised with 2 hours of dentistry.
As such it may come down to if there is a hygienist present at the local dental centre who can get your gum disease under control with a few appointments.
In the meantime you have a couple of weeks to try to help it yourself.
Stop smoking if you smoke.
Brush twice day, it really is that simple, however what is important is the method of brushing. Normally I would show a patient on a model with a toothbrush but I'll have to try to describe it instead.
You need to brush top and bottom separately. You want the tooth brush angled up for the top teeth and down for the lowers. The brush should be at about 45' ideally right at the gum margin. Short movements brushing each tooth in turn as you move along. The ideal being that the brush bristles will get around the teeth and up under the gum.
Don't worry if they bleed at the moment, that's because of the gum disease.
Need some help for my Son we are trying our third and last Appeal. My so left Marine training in November 2019, medical discharge “low mood”.
In short he did not want to stay in the marines ignorantly he told the Dr he was “down”. The let him leave with “low mood” on his papers.
He was never depressed in low mood or anything he just wanted to get out.
He never visited a Dr as he never had issues.
He stupidly put on his application that he was in low mood when his grandma died, bloody kids.
He did not have a clue what impact this would have on future applications.
So APPEAL 1 - not acceptable, more than one count of “ low mood”, which incidentally does not constitute a mental health issue.
Appeal 2 - you have had severe depression- total untruth, no idea whose records they were looking at but it wasn’t my sons.
Each appeal we have provided a Drs letter but of course he cannot say anything other than he has never seen my son because he has nothing wrong.
We have no idea what evidence we are supposed to get as anything we get will only prove he does not have issues NOW.
We are happy to get a psychiatric report but have no idea If this will help?
Please we just need to be able to get it over he is ignorant and has never had mental health issues
No idea how to approach the third Appeal any advice would be gratefully received
Thanks for your reply, at no point have we suggested lying.Appeals generally require new medical evidence .
How are you going to prove that the previous record of low mood wasn't correct?
When people use an excuse (lie) to get a result they want at the time they generally don't consider any possible long term consequences.
He has misinterpreted feeling sad as low mood and not understood that “low mood” is considered a mental health issue.
So, I applied for to be a reservist and my eyesight in my left eye failed as it was -6.25. As you can imagine I was disappointed as, if I applied a few months earlier before my latest eyesight test, I would have passed.
However , I spoke to my optician who said that my acuity at -6.25 was 6/5. If it were corrected to -6.00 (the entrance limit) it would be 6/6 (considered normal) which is massively better than 6/36! Have you seen what 6/36 is on the chart? Perhaps my understanding is incorrect but how is it my best vision corrected at -6.25 (6/5) would fail yet someone having -6.00 with 6/36 would pass. Like I said, corrected at -6.00 at 6/6 is better than the minimum requirement.
I'm not here to ask "should I appeal?" as I'm going to and my optician was happy to help me with my appeal.
I'll keep you updated as to how it goes. Has anyone else had similar experiences?
