I got hit in one of the front tooth playing rugby and now it's a little bit loose, it has got better as days passed. However, I am still worried if it will heal by itself. Also, should i wear my retainers while the tooth is loose?

  • If the tooth is getting better then it will heal but you should be very careful not to hurt it or put unnecessary pressure on this tooth. Stop eating or biting from this tooth at least for 3 weeks and maintain good oral hygeine. As far retainers are concerned if it is putting pressure on the tooth then do not put it other wisw you can put it . It will act as the splint and help in healing.
