Loose Teeth DFW Oral Surgeons TX 75028-1795There are some fairly common causes of loose teeth that everyone should be aware of.

When you are experiencing loose teeth your best thing you can do is schedule an appointment to see one our dentists or oral surgeons.

We can help you identify the reasons behind any loose teeth that you might have and help you develop a plan to help stabilize and secure your teeth once more.

Reasons for Loose Teeth

•  Gingivitis is one of the earliest forms of gum disease and is a leading cause of loose teeth and tooth loss in many people. When gingivitis becomes bad, this then leads to more dangerous forms of gum disease.
•  Periodontal disease, also known as Periodontitis, is the next evolution of gum disease and can also cause the teeth to become loose.
•  Oral trauma is the next problem that could lead to loose or missing teeth. When the person is in an accident, auto or any other, and experiences oral trauma, the chances are high that they will experience numerous loose teeth.

Things You Can Do To Help Loose Teeth

If you are experiencing loose teeth and it is due to gum disease or poor oral hygiene, then you need to get back to brushing and flossing your teeth. When we fail to brush and floss our teeth, our gums weaken and recede, which causes teeth to become loose.

Brushing, flossing, and using additional tools, such as a gum stimulator, can help trigger your gums to start the healing process, which can help secure your teeth. However, this must be done in combination with professional cleanings and other treatment plans created by our oral surgeons.

If you are experiencing loose teeth, do not hesitate to contact our office today. Our oral surgeons will help you strengthen and secure your teeth and gums and help you create a recovery plan that works best for you and your situation.
