It is not normal for adult teeth to fall out on their own. If your tooth has fallen out by itself (not caused by an injury) it may indicate bone loss or an infection. It is important to call your dentist and schedule an appointment.
Loose adult teeth are not normal. If your teeth are loose, this may indicate trauma to the jaw, bone loss, or infection. Schedule an appointment with your dentist to have your teeth assessed.
Your periodontal treatment will include recommendations and instructions on self-care which will help prevent gum disease from returning. As long as you take proper care of your teeth, your gums should stay healthy. If you ever have questions about caring for your gums or if your gum disease starts to return schedule a check-up to revisit your recommended oral hygiene regimen.
Pain and swelling in your jaw are not normal and may indicate a serious dental condition. Untreated periodontal disease leads to bone and ligament loss in the jaw and may be the cause of your discomfort. To find the cause of your jaw pain and swelling, schedule an appointment with a dentist.
Your dentist will assess your jaw and give you recommendations on a course of action designed to relieve your swelling and pain and restore your jaw.
