Lost Retainer Treatment Option
Dynamics of Shift - Movement
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
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.
