  • If you have periodontal disease then that means along with gum problem there is bone loss. If the teeth are quite mobile then you yourself cannot do anything except maintaining good oral hygiene. you have to go to dentist who will assess the extent of periodontal disease by taking xray and clinical examination. if they can be saved then may be you will need another Osseous Surgery with bone grafting otherwise they have to be pulled out. For more info on Osseous  Surgery you can read this article... http://www.identalhub.com/article_what-is-gum-disease-surgery-339.aspx
