What can I do about it?

  • Periodontal disease is the #1 leading cause of permanent tooth loss.
  • With severe infection, it causes deterioration of the gums and bones.
  • Periodontal disease affects 3 million people every year.
  • High risk of teeth shifting, permanent damage, and tooth loss.
  • Routine dental cleaning will eradicate the buildups of plaques and debris.
  • Tartar (harden plaques) attracts bacterial toxins causing swelling and inflammation.
  • Pockets (also known as spacing) can form between the tooth and gums.
  • Gingivitis damages the surrounding gums (and tissues) to become unstable.
  • Bruxism is another common cause of why teeth can become loose.
  • The condition correlates with stress, sleep, and sometimes side effects of medications.
  • Loose teeth can also be inflicted through sports-related injuries resulting in teeth, gums, and jaw trauma.
  • Preventative care is best and should be scheduled annually with your dentist.
  • Try your best to keep your loose tooth clean without touching or wiggling it to eliminate the risk of infection.
  • Always use a germ-fighting mouth wash to rinse after you brush your teeth to ensure no bacterial accumulations.
