FAQ:  Tooth Movement - Shifting Teeth


Lost Retainer Treatment Option
Dynamics of Shift - Movement

Question:
I am 33 years old and have 3 kids. In all my pregnancies my teeth got worse.

I take care of my teeth but in my 3rd pregnancy I got gingivitis-viral infection and my gums got worse. Now my molar teeth are moving.

I went to a dentist who said there is bone loss and I have to remove 4 of my teeth which are moving. They are not painful.

I had a premolar removed when I as 19 years old which caused movement of an adjacent tooth. I am taking better care of my teeth. I do brushing, flossing, mouth wash and calcium supplements. Please advise. ... Visitor from Dubai

Answer:
Whether or not your moving molar teeth can be saved is dependent upon the amount of tissue damage that has already occurred AND any unusual bite issues.

There is a remote possbility that your bite is causing opposing teeth to move around.

Get a consult with a Periodontist or Prosthodontist to learn if other treatment possibilities exist that don't include removing the teeth.
