Shin feels like stretching rubber band when moving ankle. Hit with hard ball. Att tendinitis?

I wear braces & while playing basketball i bumped into another player & my front tooth was hit. Bracket is ok but the tooth feels loose. Advice?

I wear braces & while playing basketball i bumped into another player & my front tooth was hit. Bracket is ok but the tooth feels loose. Advice?

Wait several days: During orthodontic movement the teeth are under stress and the periodontal ligament connection to the bone is at its least stable. Trauma will magnify this instability leading to a "loose" tooth. If the damage is reversible your tooth should "firm" up in a couple of days and there should be little or no lingering pain. If you have increasing pain and swelling then go see a dentist asap. ...Read more

Because physical activity puts additional stress on bones, muscles, and tendons, kids who participate in sports (such as running or jumping sports) have a higher chance of this. His doctor can help. ...Read more
