Why do my teeth move?

Do your teeth move? If you have teeth that move, and you have already passed the infant stage, we tell you that there are a number of causes that can cause it, and thus know if you have to act also knowing the possible treatments.

Naturally, the teeth have a small imperceptible movement, but when the movement of the teeth can be perceived visually and when touched, it is likely that something is wrong.

Normally the fact of having teeth that move is an indicator that there is advanced periodontal disease, with a significant deterioration of the bone base of the tooth and support in the gum, i.e. there may be jaw atrophy.

If your situation is like this, the first thing to do is to go to your dental office to have the problem diagnosed.

Here are some of the causes.

Periodontal disease: Periodontal disease affects the gums and bones surrounding the teeth. It is an oral and dental pathology that, as we have told you on other occasions, gradually destroys the tissues that support the teeth, causing dental mobility and, over time, if the bone is completely lost, the loss of the teeth.

Bruxism: If the cause is bruxism, i.e., excessive jaw clenching, the specialist will make a diagnosis to determine which treatment is best for you. He will recommend either a splint or the application of Botox.

If you have dental mobility, consult your dentist directly
