Teeth becoming loose, this thing generally happens in adults. Kids too have loose teeth but it is not considered as big problem. But if in adult life you have got loose teeth then it is serious. Pain and bleeding gums are also some other symptoms of loose teeth. It is easy to find out loose teeth, as they appear little longer than other teeth. This happens due to the gums that appear separated from the teeth. You will also have some pus formation between your teeth and gums. The mouth will also smell bad. These all are the indications of having loose teeth.

But these are the same signs that point out gum diseases or other teeth diseases. Hence only your dentist can help you to know the real reason behind all your problems.
