Diagnosis and Treatment for Loose Teeth in Green Bay, WI

Loose teeth can be an indication of a serious condition that requires immediate treatment. Dr. Craig Janssen provides gentle and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of loose teeth in Green Bay, WI.


Symptoms of Loose Teeth

Gum and bone tissue provide support for each tooth in our mouths. When these structures become severely damaged, they can no longer support the teeth, resulting in tooth loss. Patients who experience loose teeth report that the gum tissue around the base of their teeth is often swollen, red, and painful to the touch. Exudate, or pus, may also be present. Tooth mobility that occurs while chewing often causes discomfort and pain. Teeth can also feel very sensitive to cold and hot foods and beverages


The Primary Cause of Loose Teeth

Gum disease is the main cause of tooth loss for adults in the United States. When bacteria have been allowed to grow around the teeth and under the gum line, the gum tissue becomes infected and starts to pull away from the teeth while the bone is destroyed by the toxins these bacteria produce. Dr. Janssen provides thorough and gentle treatment of loose teeth as well as educates patients on how best to prevent the gum disease that leads to this condition.

Treatment for Loose Teeth in Green Bay, WI

In less common instances, loose teeth can be a result of severe decay that causes infection in the jaw bone, or trauma sustained to the teeth.


Effects of Tooth Loss

The effects of loose teeth are long term and life changing, and can include:

  • Misalignment of the teeth as remaining teeth shift
  • A change in facial appearance as the jaw bone continues to shrink
  • Difficulty and discomfort with speaking or eating, especially in public
  • The inability to eat some of your favorite foods

Loose teeth, if left untreated, can result in serious risks to good oral and overall health. Dr. Janssen provides state of the art care and treatment for gum disease and loose teeth with a gentle touch. Call our office in Green Bay, WI today for your appointment.
