i am 18yrs old. one of my 2 front teeth (upper ones) feels like wobbling. looking in the mirror it doesnt feel to be moving too much, but i know that it is..only a little bit. what could be the reason? and is there any treatment/cure for slightly wobbling teeth?

  • Slight wobbling is normal in the teeth as the teeth are not fixed in the bone but are suspended in the socket with ligaments called a periodontal ligaments. If you really try to move them they show a bit of mobility. If mobility is more then at age of 18 years, the reason can be either trauma or infection which can be due to gums or it can be due to decay. There is no need to be concerned. But if you are very apprehensive then you can visit some dentist and get it checked. In the meanwhiel keep good oral hygiene. for more info on oral hygiene you can read this article... www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-oral-hygiene-63.aspx
