How To Save Loose Teeth Due To Periodontal Disease

This Is Important

First, if you have any loose adult teeth, you need to get yourself to a periodontist right away.   This is non-negotiable.  Once a tooth is loose due to disease, you should go to a periodontist right away!  You do not want to lose the tooth and you want to try and save it.  Read the next section (What's even more important) carefully. 

What's Even More Important?  

You need the RIGHT periodontist if you want to save your loose teeth.   The problem is one of economics.  It is easier and far more lucrative to pull your tooth (teeth) and give you a nice shiny implant (or several)!  

What you need to know is that periodontists are generally very well trained in how to SAVE teeth as well.  It's just that you have to find one who is willing to take that route rather than pull and implant!  Read that again 10X.  Seriously!  

So, you need to ask your periodontist if he will save the tooth rather than pulling it.   If you are not happy with the answer you get, go to 2, 3, 4 or more periodontists until you find one that WILL SAVE the tooth (or teeth) and not pull it and give you an implant.  

As mentioned before, they have the skills and a variety of methods to save your teeth.  It's just a matter of finding the right doctor who is willing to save your teeth rather than pull them.   Read that again 10X, seriously... 

IN ANY CASE, if you are not currently under the care of a periodontist, go get one RIGHT NOW!. 

ONCE A TOOTH IS LOOSE, YOU CANNOT MESS AROUND.   Your priority is to save that tooth with the help of a periodontist.  IF YOU HAVE LOOSE ADULT TEETH - GO TO A PERIODONTIST right now.  

What If You Have Gum Disease, Periodontal Disease Or Gingivitis Without Any Loose Teeth? 

Gum disease, periodontal disease and gingivitis are basically the same disease in various stages.  The words can be used somewhat interchangeably because the disease process is basically the same.   Of course, gingivitis is the very beginning and the damage is considered reversible at that point. 

If you don't have any loose teeth but know you have anything related to this disease process or have been told that you do, then you still need to be under the care of a dentist or periodontist.  You need someone to monitor your situation and watch your periodontal pocket depths.   Remember that last phrase, it's very important. 

In addition, you might want to try the HydroFloss.  Many people, including myself have seen pocket depths shrink under the power of the HydroFloss.   You can see one here:  

The key is using it properly, something that I am willing to discuss with those who purchase their HydroFloss from

In addition, I have written  a book you might want to read: What You Should Know about Gum Disease 

Periodontal Pocket Depths

I just introduced that phrase a moment ago.   You need to know what yours are and you'll want to keep track of them.   

Here is the  reason why.  Generally speaking, when your pocket depths are 3mm or less, most dental professionals will say that your gums are healthy at that point.    So, your end goal is to get them there and keep them there.  

HydroFloss Oral Irrigator

This has proven itself to be a powerful tool when it comes to the health of gum tissue for many people.  Dentists and hygienists often recommend it to their patients as well.  Even those who do implants a lot suggest it to their patients because there is a belief among some Implantologists that using the HydroFloss can help reduce the rate of implant failures.  

Oxygenated, pH balanced Mouthwash

This is something else that may be helpful towards supporting health gum tissue.  It's oxygenated, pH balanced mouthwash.  Oxygen is useful against harmful bacteria as is a higher pH.  So you are really attacking the problem.   By the same token, you can make your own powerful oxygenated mouthwash with AktivOxigen drops or the Ozonator.  

If You Have Questions

I don't mind sparing a few minutes of my time, just use the number at the top of your screen.   Please keep in mind that you should always be under the direct care of your own skilled dentist or periodontist.
