  • At the age of 13 years loose canine tooth can be due to some trauma or may be due to teeth grinding. Sometimes due to trauma the tooth may become infected and become loose or the child has habbit of teeth grinding and tooth can become loose due to excessive pressure on that. For this you have to visit dentist who will make the diagnosis and if the tooth is loose because of trauma and infection then root canal treatment will be done but if it is because of teeth grinding the he has to wear night guard.
