Treatment for Loose Teeth
- Scaling and root planning. This is a type of deep cleaning procedure that can treat and help to reverse gum disease.
- Medications or mouth rinses. These can help infected gums to heal and combat bacteria in the mouth.
- Surgery. The aim will be to remove inflamed gum tissue and bone that has been damaged by gum disease.
- Bone grafts. These can help to rebuild bone lost to gum disease.
- Soft tissue grafts. Also known as gum grafts, these can prevent further gum or tooth loss in people with gum disease.
- Dental appliances, such as bite splints. These can reduce damage from grinding and may help the mouth to heal after dental surgery.
- Treatment for diabetes. Appropriate treatment is important for dental health.
- A dental bridge. This type of crown fits over the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The result is a bridge between two healthy teeth, connected by a prosthetic, or artificial, tooth in the place of the one that is missing.
A dental implant. This involves an artificial tooth and root, which is connected to the jawbone.
