  2. Puffy and Swollen Gums
  3. Bad Breath
  4. Tendency to press or to use toothpick
  5. Mobility of the teeth
  6. Progressive spacing of the teeth
 

CAUSES:

How one can diagnose gum infection?

Usually on a routine dental visit the dentist will identify the gum infection substantiated by X-ray investigation.

 

 

Treatment (Replace the loose teeth with dental implants)

Normal periodontal treatments and elimination of the underlying cause can get the disease under control. There are conditions which are refractory or not responding to the routine treatment which will continue to an extent where the teeth are very loose and beyond saving the teeth. In such situations the treatment of choice is to replace the loose teeth with dental implants.
