Loose Baby Teeth

A loose "baby tooth" will normally come out on its own through normal chewing. Occasionally they are swallowed, but that is harmless. If the tooth has not fallen out by the time the permanent tooth erupts, it may need to be removed by the dentist.

Loose Permanent Teeth

There are two usual possibilities: your tooth is fractured, or you are suffering from gum disease that weakens the tissue firmly holding the tooth.

If your tooth is fractured, you would probably feel pain from cold. But when your tooth is loose, the most common reason is your gums. If you are suffering from gum disease, you must get it treated right away before your tooth gets too loose and you would have to remove it. You should consult a dentist or a periodontist (gum speacialist) who will start with a tooth scaling and maybe a curetage depending of how advanced your condition is.

In rare cases, diseases or medications can weaken the bone that anchors your tooth. The living root is the important lifeline that keeps a tooth healthy, and damage to the bone or the root can make a tooth less rigid.

Your dental professional is the best person to consult on tooth problems. You should avoid any delay that can allow a bad situation to become worse.

If a tooth is not loose then the only way you can loose it is if somebody knocks it out or if you bang it off of something hard

On pulling a not loose tooth seems pretty easy. I had a not loose tooth then all I did was push it out then push it in. It doesn't hurt at all! It also automatically falls out cos it will get loose and then pull it!

How old are you? If you are young (under 12 or 13 years old) and if you haven't hit the tooth lately, then it's probably a baby tooth. It is rare for a child to have a loose adult tooth. If you are an adult and have a loose tooth, it could be gum disease.

Even if you have a loose tooth, you should still brush your teeth. It may hurt, but if you want to, don't brush the tooth that is loose. Enjoy this answer!

No. Nothing will help a loose tooth. It is dying and usually can't be saved.

get a pair of pliers and wiggle your tooth with it

if your tooth isn't that loose and you need to lose it, then all you can really do is wiggle and twist it.

If the tooth was loose due to impact, you should seek a dentist. They may be able to fix it. For the chip, the dentist can also repair that. I had a similar experience where I fell, and chipped a tooth and caused it to be loose. The dentist repaired the appearance of the tooth and the tooth stabalised itself after a while.

Possibly, but a loose wisdom tooth is a sign of other problems that need attention from a dentist.

No, because your loose tooth will fall out eventually, than you won't have anything to worry about.

User Avatar

no that is not bad it just means your child's loose tooth is really lose

User Avatar

you can just wait, or spin your baby tooth around to make it loose enough to fall out (or you just pull it out!)!

User Avatar

Yes, it is very possible to have a tooth grow under a loose tooth. I have experienced this before. If the tooth hasn't come out when the tooth under it is almost done growing, you should see a dentist. I visited a dentist and got my tooth pulled out.

There are no nerves IN a tooth. The nerve is above the tooth. That's why when it's loose and you eat, your tooth hurts. Hope this helps
