Loose teeth can be a sign of gum disease. Gum disease also known as periodontal disease is a condition that affects more than 47% of Adults in the United States. As tartar and calculus build up on your teeth they harbor colonies of bacteria which lead to bad breath and bone loss. This means you are in need of periodontal care.
Many people do not realize that the health of their teeth and gums directly impacts the rest of the body. Our dentist in Parker CO explains that multiple studies have shown that when bacteria from your gums gets into your bloodstream you are an increased risk for other diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
