How do I know if my tooth is loose?

Signs of a loose tooth include noticeable movement or shifting of the tooth, increased sensitivity or pain when chewing, and gum tenderness around the affected tooth. If you suspect a loose tooth, schedule a dental examination promptly.

Can a loose tooth tighten on its own?

In some cases, a slightly loose tooth may tighten on its own with improved oral hygiene and preventive measures. However, persistent tooth looseness often requires professional dental intervention to prevent further damage.

What should I do if I have a loose tooth?

If you have a loose tooth, it’s important to schedule a dental appointment at neighbor dental as soon as possible. Avoid wiggling or applying pressure to the loose tooth and follow any recommended home care instructions provided by Dr. Hubbard and Dr. Morgan.

Can loose teeth be saved?

The outcome of loose tooth treatment depends on the underlying cause and severity. With prompt intervention and appropriate treatment, many loose teeth can be stabilized and saved. We’ll recommend the best course of action based on your situation.
