Loose Teeth: Should I Worry?

There are problems and symptoms that arise for which you’re already certain regarding the correct response. When you notice a canker sore, you don’t worry. You simply keep it clean as it heals. When you notice tooth pain, you don’t worry. You just call us up, schedule a visit, and come in to find out what it is. When you notice loose teeth, however, this might be something you’ve never encountered before and, as a result, you may not feel prepared to act. Ignore the symptom? Convince yourself you’re imagining things? Schedule a dental visit? Let’s talk about how to move forward, so you’re remembering to keep your smile health in mind.

Worry Enough To See Us

We don’t want you to worry to the point of making yourself feel anxious because this never provides you with any real benefit! It just makes you feel bad. However, we do want you to feel concerned enough (just enough) about your loose teeth to call us up to set up a date and time for a visit. When teeth seem loose, it’s always important to examine them to determine the cause.

Don’t Let Worry Encourage DIY Efforts

Do yourself this one big favor, as well: Don’t let your worry about your loose teeth (and a potential desire to magically make it stop) allow you to engage in any DIY (do it yourself) efforts of your own. When teeth are shifting, you should absolutely leave them alone and see us ASAP. Messing with teeth that may already require dental help can make things worse instead of better.
