My lower front incisor is loose, the gum is discolored, but not swollen, & now I have pain and pressure. What might that be & what is the usual treatment?

  • It looks like that you have infection in gums which has caused the resorption of bones and hence the mobility of the teeth. Discolored gums are due to the infection and inflammation of gums. This gum disease can be because of poor oral hygiene or traumatic bite. In case of traumatic bite the lower teeth on closing the mouth hits the upper teeth and this causes gum problem and resorption of bone. If it is due to poor oral hygiene then you have to go for deep cleaning and scaling and may be gum surgery also. If it is due to traumatic bite then your dentist will adjust the bite.
