Loose Teeth
 

If you have a loose tooth as a result of a very recent trauma or accident, contact your dentist immediately!

Adults

The most common cause for loose teeth among adults is Gum Disease. If you are not currently receiving treatment for Gum Disease, and you are experiencing loose teeth, contact us for a Gum Disease screening appointment.

Children

The most common cause for loose teeth in children is erupting permanent teeth. As permanent teeth begin to erupt, the roots of the primary teeth (baby teeth) dissolve and the teeth become loose. Primary teeth will generally fall out on their own at the appropriate time, but if a primary tooth doesn't fall out soon after the permanent tooth erupts, contact us so we can prevent complications from a retained primary tooth.

Your child may be tempted to wiggle a loose tooth, and that is fine, but do not apply any significant pressure to a primary tooth to hasten it's removal. The primary teeth play an important role in guiding the permanent teeth into proper position.
