What to do if I have periodontal disease, loose teeth, pain all the time. I went to denture place and was turned away?
Complete dentures: Also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues and/or dental implants. If you have a periodontal disease you deserve a teeth replacement to improve your health. Rec.: second opinion with another dentist for diagnosis and treatment. Take care.See 3 more doctor answers
Shifting of teeth: Teeth can shift due to parafunctional habits or a less than ideal occlusion (bite). If one has periodontal disease, it increases the chances. The more serious the problem (loss of bone) the more likely the drifting of teeth. See your dentist for routine check-ups in order to catch all dental problems early.See 1 more doctor answer
This can happen: Periodontal disease destroys the bone that holds your teeth. As the disease advances your teeth can get loose and eventually fall out. This can happen without ever having pain. If you have this problem see a periodontist.

I have periodontal disease, but no insurance. I have had it for a while, how much do procedures cost. I think it progressed a lot I just want to know if it is possible to save my teeth. I'm only 42. I have no insurance and only work part time so finances
Diagnosis/payments: You first need a specific diagnosis of your gum disease before a cost can be applied to the treatment. You also need to recognize that the failure to treat gum disease will lead to tooth lose and some type of replacement. That to has a cost. Your own teeth almost always are better than "store bought teeth". So see if your dentist can create a treatment&payment schedule that is realistic for you!See 4 more doctor answers

I have a 1 mm (1/2mm yr. Ago) space between my front teeth. Teeth shift later in life? If I do not have periodontal disease what could it otherwise be?
Orthodontics/retain: Orthodontic therapy can correct the ever increasing space, assuming you are otherwise in good dental health - no tooth decay or periodontal disease. Teeth can move at any age and be corrected at any age as well! If you have any kind of dental disease, correct that first and than fix the space! Good zluck?!See 2 more doctor answers
If you have perio-: Dontal disease proceed very carefully when considering implants. The same disease that is working to destroy bone and gum support for your teeth can do the same to implants. My best advice is to work w your dentist to control periodontal disease in your mouth prior to implant surgery and then work hard w oral hygiene and dental visits to keep the disease in check. Good luck!See 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Without internal stimulus, the jaw bones will slowly wither away.
If teeth fall out and there is no periodontal disease anymore, how is it possible that bone can still be lost?
Atrophy: When the bone is internally stimulated by an intact tooth (or implant) during function, the bone tends to remain dense around the tooth (or implant). If the bone has no internal stimulus (pressure) it tends to atrophy and wither away over time. The same principle occurs in other bones of the bony. In essence, the bone exists to support teeth. No teeth, no need for bone.See 2 more doctor answers
