My kids permanent tooth is loose because a baby tooth next to the permanent tooth has a tooth growing in behind it, what should I do he is 13?

My kids permanent tooth is loose because a baby tooth next to the permanent tooth has a tooth growing in behind it, what should I do he is 13?

Get it checked: Real hard to answer without an exam and an x-ray. It's pretty unlikely that a baby tooth will displace a grownup tooth so maybe there is even an extra one in there! don't worry - bring him in to get it checked and see what's actually going on. 13 is a little delayed to be getting teeth anyway so an orthodontic check is probably in order. Best of luck to you! ...Read more

Gum disease: Loose teeth in the mouth is a sure sign that periodontal disease has been active in the mouth for a while. If untreated the loose teeth are going to drop out of your mouth one at a time. The good news that that it is possible to stop the bacteria responsible for gum disease and to recover from having loose teeth. See your dentist for exam, x-rays and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
