Tooth mobility is typically a red flag for a dental problem, which may require immediate attention. There are a number of different oral health conditions that can cause tooth loosening.
Periodontal disease affects not only your gums but also the ligaments and bone that surround and support your teeth. Periodontal disease is one of the most common causes for loose and shifting teeth.
You can avoid this disease, and you don’t have to let it get to the point of developing periodontal pocketing and loose teeth.
High levels of progesterone and oestrogen during pregnancy can cause the ligaments and bone around your teeth to loosen, which results in tooth mobility. Fortunately, this is usually a temporary situation that does not normally result in tooth loss unless there are other complications, such as periodontal disease. Don’t take a chance; at the first sign of any tooth movement while pregnant and consult with your dentist.
