Brief Answer: Yes it is possible because of constant infection Detailed Answer: Hello, This is Dr. DIPTI XXXXXXX here to replay your query. Undetected long standing infection is known to affect gums and teeth. So yes, if you had an undetected infection, then your teeth would become loose. However since the gums can become loose due to non infective condition / non - STD infection, it is essential that you visit a dentist and confirm the cause of loose gums. Hope this helps. Thank You Regards Dr. Dipti XXXXXXX

Brief Answer: Get your blood sugar level checked once Detailed Answer: Hello, Actually there are other reasons also for getting your teeth loosened. It can be possible that your blood sugar level is high, as if a person is diabetic he is prone for getting infections and even teeth also become mobile and even get decayed. According to me once you should get your blood sugar level checked. Hope this will help you Thank you Regards Dr. Dipti Singh

Brief Answer: Please do not use any medication without diagnosis Detailed Answer: Hello, Fungal infection are to be treated appropriately. Inappropriate treatment is one of the commonest reasons for chronic infection and drug resistance. I do not recommend you to do candida cleanse with an unknown drug (not FDA approved). Starting any medication without diagnosis is to be avoided. You may want to discuss about these concerns with an infectious disease specialist for better answers. Thank you Regards Dr. Dipti Singh
