FAQ:  Tooth Movement - Shifting Teeth

Lost Retainer Treatment Option
Dynamics of Shift - Movement

Shifting Teeth: Over the last few months my teeth are moving at a fast pace! I am 38.

It is my 3rd and 4th tooth from my front teeth that are seemingly being pushed back and now look awful. What can I do? I have been to my dentist who said nothing can be done.

I am petrified of dentists which doesn't help. My gum above these teeth seem to go in. Please help as this is ruining my life. ... Visitor from Trowbridge UK

The condition you are describing fits well with advanced stages of gum disease.

This causes a lot of bleeding, sensitivity, loosening and movement of teeth, and eventually loss of teeth. This is a very serious condition.

The main cause of the problem is plaque, also known as a sticky film attached to the surfaces of your teeth. If the plaque is not removed on a daily basis by thorough brushing and flossing, it will lead to a build up of more plaque.

Plaque produces acid, which causes cavities and toxins that attack gums. If left untreated, the situation deteriorates over a period of time to a situation similar to what you have described.

My recommendation would be to deal with the gum disease at home using a range of products made by Dental Health Institute. These include toothpaste, mouth wash and gum conditioner gel.

In my experience, this combination will help to keep your mouth clean, and prevent the disease from spreading further.

It is important that you visit the dentist regularly, however, you can do a lot on your own to prevent and maintain your oral health on a daily basis. Gum disease is the most common cause of loss of teeth.

Depending on the severity of your condition, you can prevent the loss of teeth by these simple measures.
