Different Causes Of Loose Tooth

In adults, a loose tooth is a cause of concern. It occurs when a tooth loses support from the gum and bone. This may also result in bleeding gums, swollen gums, and receding gums. When you eat or chew food the tooth can further loosen. Or if you touch the tooth repeatedly, it can also move out. You should rush towards a private dentist Basingstoke, once you become aware of the loose tooth as you can reverse it. Although if it falls out, then the dentist may suggest a bridge or dental implant to replace it with an artificial tooth.
