Loose tooth: Teeth that are loose as a result of periodontal disease may tighten up again once they are treated by periodontal therapy. This may involve deep cleaning, surgery, and splinting the teeth. It mostly depends on the amount of bone loss. What is most important is follow-up care with the periodontist, and by yourself at home.
