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 several causes can cause it, and thus know if you must act also knowing the possible treatments.

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

Usually, the fact of having teeth that move indicates 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 go to your dental office to diagnose the problem.

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, 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 diagnose 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.
