In brief: Perio Treatment!
Find the best periodontist in your area, go for a consultation, find out your treatment options, follow recommendations, complete all the necessary treatment and commit to daily better oral hygiene by brushing and flossing.
Also see your general dentist and have all your basic dental needs taken care of.

In brief: Dental problem
You should see a dentist because it is a serious infection, usually affecting other teeth also.

In brief: You have bone loss
Your teeth are loose because the bony support has deteriorated.
How much is impossible to tell over the internet, but a local dentist can examine you to determine what course of treatment is needed and if you need to be referred to a periodontist.

Have an evaluation and see what kind of treatment is needed.
It may be a deep cleaning or surgery or perhaps both.

You have advance stage periodontitis! You are in danger of losing all of your teeth. See a dentist or a periodontist if you want to save some of them.

In brief: See a Periodontist
You should see a periodontist immediately, because gum disease can be treated effectively and many of the symptoms can be reversed.
