Can Gum Disease Be Repaired if Your Teeth Get to the Point of Being Loose?


Posted on 7/10/2018 by David Mugford
Can Gum Disease Be Repaired if Your Teeth Get to the Point of Being Loose?If you have, or suspect that you have, gum disease, it is important to find out what is going on inside of your mouth and what exactly can be done about it.

Ideally, if you do have gum disease, we want to address the issue as soon as possible. If we are able to treat it in the earlier stages, we can minimize or eliminate the risk of tooth loss.

When you let gum disease go untreated for too long, you can definitely lose some or all of your teeth. It is harder to clear up the disease once it has progressed and spread throughout the mouth. Once you get to this stage, treatment options become limited. However, limited doesn't mean you're stuck without options or that you have to suffer needlessly.

Clearing Up Gum Disease

The best thing we can try to do during the early stages of gum disease is to try and eliminate it entirely. It may require a number of treatments, medications and cleanings to clear up most of the bacteria that are causing problems.

These treatments are created specifically to try and improve the overall health of your teeth and gums. If you are in the later stages of gum disease and we are unable to prevent your teeth from becoming loose, we may have to start discussing implants, dentures or other restoration options.

Gum disease, when caught early enough, can be cleared up and eliminated. That is why following the oral regiment that we suggest to you is so important. Our goal is to try and save as many of your teeth as possible and improve your overall quality of life.

Speak with our office today to find out more about gum disease, schedule an appointment to have an oral exam, or ask about restoration options for any missing teeth you may already have.
