How To Help A Loose Wisdom Tooth
Sure: It is safe for your dentist to extract the tooth if it is loose.... If you were asking if it was safe for you to extract your own tooth since it was loose, I would advise against it since there are complications you are not prepared to handle.See 1 more doctor answer
Bad Idea: Don't do this. You can run into worse and more expensive problems than just paying for the dentist to professionally and hygienically remove it. A dentist can remove it often for less than an oral surgeon if it is loose. See a dentist!See 1 more doctor answer

I have a small flap of gum behind a fully grown wisdom tooth. The tooth itself give me no troubles, is this little piece of loose gum normal?
Common, yes....: Common, yes...but whether or not it's "normal" and requires no treatment or perhaps might require some treatment depends upon the position of your wisdom tooth, the opposing teeth, the bite and the periodontal condition. Have your own dentist evaluate this for you.See 3 more doctor answers
Extraction: There's much more to be considered wending an extraction other than whether a tooth is loose or not. If the tooth is loose it may be infected, or the bone around the tooth (and therefore next to the adjacent tooth) may be damaged. Shape or angulation of the roots, proximity to the lower jaw nerve, may be factors. Wisest thing would be for a wisdom tooth expert to treat you. See an Oral Surgeon

I'm 45 old I have been exposed to mold for a while what would cause a perfectly good wisdom tooth no cavity, become loose and fall out root and all?
Gum disease: Not mold related. Sounds like you are significantly overdue for a visit to your Dentist. Please go now.
See a dentist: If the clot is actually loose, there is no way to reattach it to the bone and most likely the clot will come out. If that happens and you start to get pain, call the dentist who extracted the tooth. If you have pain now with the loose clot, also call the doctor to be evaluated and he might be able to get a new clot to form.See 1 more doctor answer
Jaw pain on left side, wisdom tooth has been grown in for years. Loose flap of skin/gum near the tooth, pain up and down jaw bone?
Jaw pain: I'm not sure what your question is. Since you are in pain, especially with an ongoing problem that has not gone away for years, the logical and smart approach would be to see a dentist to evaluate the need to remove your problematic wisdom tooth and make sure you have no other dental problems that require treatment.See 4 more doctor answers
OTC and DDS: You will need to see your dentist in order to determine whether or not the tooth needs to be removed. Actually, it may be an adjacent tooth that in fact is causing the problem. Only a dentist after an examination and an x-ray or two can determine the cause of your pain. In the meantime, take some advil, motrin, aleve (naproxen) or what you would normally take for a headache. Salt water rinses may also help.See 5 more doctor answers
Variety of reasons: Most often it it because they can't erupt properly, many times they erupt partially causing food to get stuck under your gums, where they have not erupted causing an infection. Also this can make it hard to clean and many times they get cavities in them that are unrestorable or can cause damage to the teeth next to them. There is also a higher incidence of cysts around unerupted wisdom teeth.See 4 more doctor answers
Tooth roots: Wisdom teeth can vary in their size, shape and number of roots. Some teeth may be very small but other can be gigantic. A good x-ray should tell your dentist the proper number. I have seen some teeth with one root (may or not be fused together) to one with more than 7 separate roots. Frequently when there are more roots, the extraction can be more complicated and/or take longer. Hope this helps.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Any tooth can chip or crack and end up with a sharp edge. In fact, this is very common, especially as we get older and have chewed with our teeth for many decades. If the chip is small, it an be smoothed and polished. If it's larger, it can be repaired. However, specifically for wisdom teeth, it's usually easier and more predictable just to remove the tooth. You'll never miss it.See 1 more doctor answer
Manageable: With proper administration of anastasia, be it general or local, the removal procedure can be painless. Post treatment pain management can be controlled to a mild level with proper pain medications. Further, following your surgeons post operative care instruction carefully is important. Depending on the extraction type, erupted, soft tissue or boney removal will also be a factor.See 5 more doctor answers
