Loose Teeth in Las Vegas

If you have loose teeth or your teeth are starting to shift, you need to set up a consultation with an esteemed cosmetic dentist, like Dr. Peter Balle in Las Vegas, as soon as possible. Dr. Balle has extensive experience in treating loose teeth as well as recommending tooth replacement options for teeth that are deemed hopeless. When the teeth become loose or are moving easily, you may need to be evaluated for gum disease or other oral health problems that can cause tooth loss or irreversible bone damage. Even small movements of the teeth can be a red flag that there is an underlying health problem or oral health issue that must be addressed.

Loose Teeth Causes

Loose teeth can be the result of progressing gum disease and should be evaluated by Dr. Balle as soon as possible. If you have progressing periodontal disease that is left untreated, it can end up destroying the gum tissue and bone around the teeth. If there is not enough of a supportive structure to keep your teeth in place, you can develop loose teeth that eventually fall out or must be extracted. In some cases, loose teeth can be a side effect of underlying health conditions.
