I have had bone implant and my tooth is still loose?

Q. Hello i have periodontal disease i already had the bone implant and its been about 5 month since and my tooth is still loose will it improve how long should it take before any results? and if it doesn’t work is their more i can do about my bone loss as far as tooth replacement if i was to lose it? i am only 26yr old and i don’t want to lose my teeth. Please any hope

A. There is always hope.  Obviously periodontal disease at 26 is quite young for the amount of bone loss necessary for a tooth to loosen.  You should discuss your concerns with your dentist and I would recommend that you be referred to a specialist periodontist.
