Why You Should Hold a Loose Permanent Tooth Still While Coming to See Us

Posted on 9/30/2019 by Cane Bay Family Dentistry
Why You Should Hold a Loose Permanent Tooth Still While Coming to See Us When your teeth are loose, and they are not baby teeth, this is a serious problem. You don't want to worry about losing the teeth or having them get completely knocked out. When this happens, knowing the precautions to take and how to go about getting help can ensure that you get the best dental outcome.

Loose Permanent Teeth are an Emergency Situation

When you have loose permanent teeth, you shouldn't have them. If you notice this, then it is important to reach out to our office as soon as possible. Once you give us a call or have someone else give us a call, explain the situation and request an emergency visit. We can then fit you in right away.

During the time traveling to our office for your visit, keeping the tooth in place and not moving it is very important. Not only because you want this tooth to stay attached as much as possible to the gum line. You want to keep it there, because we can structure something to hold it in place and have the gum heal around it. Having this natural tooth in place and being able to keep it is generally important to be done.

Loose teeth are not something that you want to deal with, or something that you should have to deal with. It does happen though, and if it happens to you, reaching out to our office is the best thing you can do.

If you find your tooth is loose, no matter the reason why, it is important to reach out to us as soon as possible. Even if it is after hours, speaking with someone in our office that can help put the tooth in place and preserve it is the best thing to do. Call us right away!
