  • At the age of 14 if the teeth are wiggling that too the adut teeth .it is not normal. little wiggling or mobility is normal as the teeth they are not fixed in the bone but suspended in the dental socket with the igamet. So if you really move them hard they will seem mobile. But you should try to maintain very good oral hygeine .Dental floss should clean the area between the teeth . it should not go high up in the gums otherwise it will irritate the gums.
