LOOSE TOOTH
_____________________________________________________

In most cases this condition is the result of destruction of the supporting structure, the tissue, connective fibers, and bone, as in periodontal disease. The exception is when the tooth has under gone trauma from a blow, malocclusion or some other destabilizing event.

 
Temporary Treatment for a Loose Tooth
 

Generally, when the tooth has become mobile as a result of periodontal disease the long term treatment is dependent upon the degree of mobility and the amount of bone loss. The mobility must be evaluated by a dentist to determine if other factors such as traumatic occlusion (the bite is applying excessive force on the tooth), orthodontic movement with root resorption or other conditions that may be involved. The best way to achieve temporary relief from pain until a dentist can be seen is not to bite down on the tooth.This at times can be difficult because oft the natural movement (occlusion) between opposing teeth.

1.
Place a cotton gauze on the opposite side of the mouth so that the teeth on the painful side don't touch. Bite down gently and hold in place. Caution: Do not fall asleep with the gauze in your mouth.

2. Try one of the common analgesics such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Contact a dentist immediately for an appointment.
