What are the causes of loose teeth in the elderly

Long-term inflammation of periodontal tissues can lead to the gradual loss of tooth supporting tissues, which in turn can cause tooth loosening. Moreover, some systemic diseases (e.g. diabetes) commonly suffered by the elderly can also aggravate the original inflammation of periodontal tissues, which can lead to tooth loosening.
