My nephew has loose teeth, back spot on his gums and can actually pull his gums down. He has always had good teeth. He is 27 years old and use to smoke (about 8 years). He went to his dentist and was told that there was nothing to be concerned about. However, I have a huge concern. Can you offer any insight to this problem? Thanks.

  • If the gums are loose and teeth also loose then that means your nephew is having a gum problem. so he has to consult some Periodontist (gums specialist) for problem. At age of 27 years it is not normal to have loose teeth. As far as black spots on gums are concerned it can be normal as it can be pigmentation called as dark gums which is quite normal. But nothing can be said with clinical examination. So I would suggest you to consult a gum specialist asap to check the problem For more info on gums problems you can read this article....
