Age 50 and My Front Tooth is Loose. What Do I Do?

Doctor Answers 3

Loose tooth? A definite problem.

It will probably need to be removed. Gum disease is the most likely culprit. Lack of healthy bone will make it loose and you will need a implant and crown to fix it.

Need to know WHY

What to DO depends on WHY.  Is it from bone loss?  From a bad bite?  Recent trauma?  After that is established, the "what to do" phase is next.  It may be a simple solution, it may be complex.


So, what to do?  See your dentist or periodontist ASAP.
