Gum hurts & loose teeth
I have been dealing with oral health issues ever since I was a kid. I have had a root canal for one of my molar teeth some 4 years ago. But the dentist never told me I need other treatments too. But now I feel terrible with my oral problems. I recently started feeling pain on 2 my lower front teet; they feel loose and the gum in that part hurts a lot. Can you please tell me is it some Periodontal disease, looking at the picture? It looks like one to me. Thanks, doc.

Loose teeth suggest poor peridontal condition. Treatment for periodontal disease with scaling root planing. In most of cases scaling suffices but in severe cases require further treatment like flap surgery.

Hi,Please get a teeth cleaning done from the dentist which ideally has to be done 6 monthly to yearly for strong & healthy gums.After cleaning if the teeth are still loose a xray has to be taken to evaluate the amount of bone present & further treatment decided.Brush twice daily with soft bristle toothbrush & Use a Mouthwash.
