Inflamed Gums Are a Sign of Gum Disease

Inflamed gums and loose teeth are some of the warning signs of gum disease and other oral health issues that could damage the teeth and supporting bone. In some cases, bone loss can make your teeth shift and loose teeth can affect your bite. If you are noticing any signs of gum disease, you must schedule an oral examination with Dr. Israel Trujillo as soon as possible.

Loose Teeth in Merced, CA

When your teeth start to become loose or shift easily, it may be a sign of other oral health problems. If this is occurring, you must come in for an oral health evaluation as soon as possible. Dr. Trujillo can determine whether you have gum disease or other oral health problems that are causing inflamed gums and loose teeth.

Causes of Loose Teeth

Your teeth may become loose if you have untreated periodontal disease. They may also shift easily if you experience any type of injury to the mouth. An active infection in the mouth can cause loss of attachment and the teeth can be so loose that they eventually need to be extracted. Some health conditions increase your risk of developing periodontal disease.

Symptoms of Loose Teeth

Some of the common signs and symptoms of gum disease and loose teeth include:

• Inflamed gums
• Gum recession
• Pus building up around the teeth
• Food getting stuck between teeth
• Bleeding gums

The early stages of gum disease are reversible and you need to have treatment as soon as you notice any symptoms, such as bad breath, loose teeth, or inflammation in the mouth. We offer a variety of treatment options including localized antibiotic therapy, scaling and root planing treatment, laser gum surgery, tooth extractions, and tooth replacement procedures.
