  • At the age of 80 the loose teeth are because of the bone loss and the peridontal probem. If the teeth are very mobile with severe bone loss then nothing can be done It is difficult to save them. It is better to get them pulled out and go for either implants or dentures. He can visit the dentist and can find out after getting the x-ray's and the clinical examinations whether any teeth can be saved or not. If few teeth can be saved then it is better as in that cae the dentures are more successful But you have to ge tthe clinical evaluation done.
