My hygienist, Kay wrote this blog that I thought I would share with you “YOUR TOOTH IS LOOSE!” Over the past 17 years that I have worked with Dr. Samuel Romano, as a Dental Hygienist, we have told patients who range in age from 2 years old to 90+ years old that they have a loose tooth. I have found that the reaction varies according to what age you are when you hear this news. For example, Children are so excited to hear they have a loose tooth. Losing a tooth between the age of six and thirteen is a natural process. The wiggling begins with thoughts of the tooth fairy and joining their peers who have lost teeth all ready. It is a fun and exciting time. However, adults feel a mix of emotions, such as, anxiety, shock, and sadness upon hearing the news of a loose tooth. As adults we expect to keep our teeth a lifetime. Our teeth are useful for speech, nourishment and who can resist a smile. There are various reasons an adult can have a loose tooth. First of all, the way your teeth fit together when you bite may cause a tooth to become mobile. Let’s face it there is more stress living and working in New Jersey than North Carolina. This stress can cause us to grind and clench our teeth which can make them loose. Secondly, if you have a traumatic injury to the tooth from a fall, a sports injury or that child who gives you an accidental headbutt the consequence could be a loose tooth. Thirdly, if you have gum disease the bone around the tooth weakens causing less support around the tooth. Again a loose tooth can be the outcome from loss of support. Lastly, a cavity left untreated may result in an infection around the tooth that could weaken the tooth. There are many reasons why we have loose teeth as adults. However, it is important to remember that there are treatments available that can tighten up those loose teeth. Check with a Dentist to see what options are best for your situation. Your smile can last a lifetime!
