Hi doctor,

I have receding gums, and they are sore as well. Two of the teeth are wobbly, and I am terrified they are going to fall out. I am only 19 years old. I brush and floss my teeth twice a day. I used to smoke. Since I have noticed my teeth issue, I quit smoking. Please help me. I am desperate.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • As per your complaint, it looks like you have deep gum infection and it is causing loss of attachment of teeth to gums making them loose.
  • As you are a smoker, it causes the gum health to deter even faster.
  • When there is a recession, only home remedies will not be sufficient, and you need to consult a periodontist and get evaluated.
  • Deep scaling and curettage followed by antibiotics and antiseptic mouthwash gargle will help.
  • Along with it, complete stoppage of smoking, gum paint massage, and warm saline gargle will help.
  • If there is a progressive recession, then gum grafts can be advised.

Investigations to be done:

Panoramic x-ray.

Probable diagnosis:

Periodontitis.
