Loose, Mobile, Drifting, Moving Teeth

Loose, mobile, drifting and moving teeth are a major dental concern and should be assessed.

Loose teeth are often associated with advanced periodontal disease.

Mobile teeth may be associated with bite problems and needs to be assessed by the dentist. Correct treatment will protect other teeth from an overloaded bite.

Drifting / moving teeth may also be associated with periodontal disease or bite problems.

Careful examination and diagnosis is required to determine the cause of the problem and to identify the best treatment to arrest its progression.
