Gum Disease and Loose Teeth​​​​​​​

Aside from accidents and trauma, which can make teeth loose, most patients who come to us for loose teeth treatment are dealing with gum disease. Gum disease is a progressive problem caused by oral bacteria that destroys gum and bone tissue. Deep pockets can develop between the teeth and gums, providing a place for bacteria to continue to grow and eat away at connective tissue and bone. Once this happens, the teeth lose stability. Without intervention, they are at great risk of becoming lost.
