I'm 56 and been told I have bone loss. I have teeth missing

Resolved Question:

Hi I'm 56 and been told I have bone loss. I have teeth missing on my left top side and the same with right bottom side. I did have crowns at each side of my 2 front teeth. Sadly one broke and was unrepairable so was pulled out. I wear a partial denture. My problem is my front teeth are moving and my once lovely smile is now crooked. One tooth is shifting forward and the other is crooked and leaning to the right. My dentist says there is nothing he can do. My smile confidence has gone. Will I need to have one of my front teeth extracted. Any advice please.

Just to add the front tooth that is moving forward is slightly mobile. The crooked one is secure. Thank you

No bone loss anywhere else. My mother had same problem with losing her teeth. I take high blood pressure and cholesterol medication. I'm in good health but I am on the menopause for 3-4 yrs. I'm not really sure what you can advise me. I'm worried I will end up losing 1 or 2 of my front teeth in order to get my smile back as I'm very Conscious of my crooked strange smile. I hate to loose any more teeth. My dentist tells me he can't do anything to straighten my front teeth. I just wanted a different opinion. Thank you
