Brief Answer:
You should visit Periodontist to fix this problem

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXX
Thank you for consulting with HCM.
This is Dr. Dipti Singh here to answer your query.

As you are mentioning that you have bleeding from gums and even your front teeth has become loose, This happens because of gum infection which is called as gingivitis and when this gum infection progress down towards the roots of the teeth they even cause loosing of teeth, as in your case. This happens because of improper brushing technique.

For the treatment you have to visit a good dentist for the cleaning of teeth and gums (oral prophylaxis). This will help in stopping the gum bleeding. And for loosened teeth you can go for gum surgery in which dentist will place the gums back in position and fix the teeth with a thin wire. For a proper treatment even you can visit a Periodontist as they deal in gum problems only.

Even you should ask him for proper brushing and oral hygiene maintenance Techniques.

Hope it will help you
Thank You
Regards
Dr. Dipti Singh

Brief Answer:
There is no medicine which can fix teeth

Detailed Answer:
Hello, XXXXXX
Actually the gum surgery which controls the loosening of the teeth and make them tight it depends upon the grade of mobility of tooth, if it is so much that it can not be controlled by surgery, then you have to get it removed, other wise they will create further problems, like abscess in the tooth.
So once you meet a periodontist, if he also says for removal, then you have to go for it.
And there is no medicine which can fix the teeth.
If a periodontist also says that they can not be fix then you have to get them removed.
Even there is nothing to worry in artificial teeth, they look like real only.
Hope it will help you.
Thank you

i went to the dr. yesterday for sore throat, body aches. was told it was not strep but viral infection. she did notice a pus pocket on the right side of my throat, I was prescribed antibiotics (Z-pack) for 5 days. My dr told me to gargle with salt / warm water. My question is should I try to remove the pus pocket myself with a q-tip, as that is what I have been reading online that several people remove the pus pocket with q-tip.

Hello. 3 days ago, I had a short-lived stomach virus,around 24 hours long, and vomited a total of 21 times, causing me to lose some weight and become dehydrated. Ever since then, I have had this continuing bad taste in my mouth. I tried drinking a lot of water, brushing my teeth and tongue constantly, and using mouth wash, but it doesn't seem to work. Originally, the bad taste originated in the left side of my mouth, along my tongue, and now it has spread to my entire tongue. I thought it may have been oral thrush, but I saw no film or change in my tongue's appearance.
