  • You have not mentioned your age or any historyof trauma because the teeth do not start wiggling without any cause. Either there is a history of trauma or gum infection whch causes the mobility in teeth. You should floss gently and the floss should be between the teeth not under the gums. It can irritate the gums. You should visit your dentist and find out the cause of wiggling. For more info on dental flossing you can visit the following
