Wobbly Teeth is Often a Symptom of Periodontitis

Do your teeth wobble, or does your bite seem a little off? If so, the first question that you may be wondering is why? In most cases, wobbly teeth are caused by gum disease known as Periodontal disease. Never heard of it?

Periodontal disease is diagnosed by your dentist when gum tissue that normally surrounds the tooth, begins to recede away from the tooth. None the less, when gums recede away from the teeth pockets, bacteria is created and collected. When bacteria build-up occurs, the gum can end up infected.
