Loose teeth: It depends upon why they are loose. Most often it is a result of bone loss from periodontal (gum) disease. But it could also happen as a result of grinding and clenching, or from orthodontic movement. See your dentist to determine what the cause is.

Not too fast!: Even there's only 20% of bone left, e.g. Anterior teeth, and they're loose due to periodontal disease, they can still be saved.
