Inflamed Gums Are a Sign of Gum Disease

Inflamed gums and loose teeth are some of the warning signs of an active infection in the mouth. Gum disease needs to be treated as soon as it is detected because it can cause bone loss and eventual tooth loss.

Treatment for Loose Teeth in Arkansas

If your teeth are starting to become loose or shift easily, it may be a warning sign of other oral health issues including gum disease. These symptoms need to be taken seriously and we can put together a treatment plan to eradicate any infection in the mouth. Gum disease and other oral health problems may be causing loose teeth and inflammation of the gum tissue.

Causes of Loose Teeth

Your teeth may become loose if you have untreated gum disease. They can also shift easily if you experience any type of trauma or injury to the mouth, or have an endodontic infection that has invaded the bone. Progressing gum disease can cause destruction of the bone to the point that the teeth end up needing to be extracted.

Loose Teeth Symptoms

Some of the signs and symptoms of loose teeth include:

  • Gum recession
  • Bleeding gums
  • Food getting stuck between the teeth
  • Pus buildup around the teeth
  • Inflammation in the mouth
The early stages of gum disease are reversible and we advise patients to seek treatment as soon as symptoms develop. We offer several effective treatment options for addressing periodontal disease, including laser gum surgery, periodontal maintenance therapy, tooth extractions, and tooth replacement procedures.

Healthy adult teeth should never become loose. For more information about different treatment options for loose teeth in Arkansas, schedule an appointment with Dr. Osborne, Dr. Curry, or Dr. Shelton today!
