My Teeth Sometimes Feel Loose. What Can I Do?
As we age, our bone structure, jaw line, and teeth begin to change due to the aging process. Adult teeth can feel loose for various reasons, and it’s important that you speak with your dentist as soon as possible in order to determine the cause of this sensation. It has been found that many adults experience loose teeth in the early morning hours, only to have them feel completely fine as the day goes on. This could be one of the reasons why your teeth feel loose which is caused by trauma to tiny ligaments found at the roots of your teeth. By trauma, we also mean something as minimal as clenching your teeth at night which can cause this to occur.
If left untreated, a number of other conditions can develop like gum recession, teeth shifting, or loose teeth. There are various ways for loose teeth to be treated, but it’s imperative that you visit your dentist to see what the cause is and which treatment is right for you. If you think that you may have damage caused by clenching your teeth or if you are suffering from loose teeth, contact our dental office today.
Remember, any condition left untreated can eventually lead to more serious conditions. Visit us regularly as determined by your dentist. We look forward to hearing from you!
