Dental assessment: Your question got cut off. TO sort out what is going on here will require an examination of the mouth and may require consideration of X-rays re your wisdom tooth. Recommend seeing a dentist or doctor licensed in your area for assessment.

Loose tooth: Usually indicates loss of bone support. Wisdom tooth erupting is coincidental, not causative. Smoking exacerbates gum/bone disease. See your Dentist ASAP. This type of problem does not self-cure.

Hard to say : If your eye tooth is wiggling and sensitive it could be periodontal problems but they may or may not be related to your wisdom teeth erupting. See your dentist to evaluate for further information

More info needed...: Age? Dental history? Periodontal issues? If your last check-up and exam was more than six months ago, it's time to call for an appointment.

How can I make dental work easier on myself?

Brush and floss: Brush twice a day and floss at least once. Eating crunchy foods stimulates the jaw bones and teeth to harden. Floss daily to remove tartar and bits of food from between teeth. Use a water pick, a device that shoots small jets of water at the base of and between the teeth, one or two times a week to further loosen plaque. And get dental cleanings every six months.

Find a compassionate dentist that you are comfortable with and express your concerns about what may happen during treatment. Some of us use nitrous oxide in the office to relax a patient during treatment. There are also instances where low dose tranquilizers can be used to make treatment easier

Can dental work cause tn?

Maybe: Tn is due to inflammation of the fifth cranial nerve. Dental work could cause it but more likely than not it simply inflamed the condition which you already had before the dentist performed the work.
