Loose Teeth (Adults) Dentist, Hawthorn East
Loose teeth (adults)
Unlike baby or primary teeth, adult teeth do not just become loose. Loose teeth can result due to advanced gum disease, this is when the disease has damaged the gums and bone holding the tooth in the jaw, resulting in reduced support, and the tooth becoming mobile. Teeth can also become loose or mobile due to an accident or trauma. Emergency dental treatment is paramount in these situations, and highly recommended. Please call Tendler Dental for any emergency appointments.
