Font : A-A+

Frequently asked questions

1. Which doctor should I see if i have loose teeth?

You should see a dentist.

2. What level of teeth mobility can be stabilized?

Mobility of 1mm can be treated successfully, but anything beyond this level reduces the chances of success. Also teeth loosened due to trauma have a better chance of success than teeth loosened due to infection.

3. Is splinting painful?

This procedure is normally done under local anesthesia; hence pain will not be a problem.

Wisdom teeth are third or final set of molars people get in their teen years. Partial eruption of wisdom teeth allows an opening for bacterial infection and thereby results in pain, swelling, jaw stiffness.
