General Info About Loose Teeth
Certain amount of tooth mobility is always present and it is natural, as the teeth are not fixed tight in their sockets. They are attached to the bone via a slightly elastic ligament and so they can be moved a little. This movement can be felt when the teeth are clenched. However, visible movement of the tooth is sufficient to diagnose tooth mobility.
The tissues around a loose tooth become red, swollen and damaged. The person experiences pain and discomfort while chewing food.
