What are the causes of tooth loss:
1) periodontal disease is the most common reason for tooth looseness. It is a bacterial infection of the gum and/or bone tissues that surround and support your teeth.
The infection results from bacterial plaque that sits on your teeth in the absence of effective oral hygiene. Over time, periodontal disease will cause gum tissue to detach from the teeth as plaque and tartar formation builds up and the bone around the teeth is lost.
If severe periodontal disease remains untreated, loose teeth will eventually fall out.
2) Another common contributor to the loosening of teeth is a clenching or grinding habit that generates too much biting force. These habits can accelerate bone loss and also cause jaw pain and excessive tooth wear.
