What Dentists Can Do to Help When Teeth Get Loose

When your teeth get loose due to a sports injury or an accident, they don't need to come off. There are effective dental procedures on how you can still keep your teeth.

People with gum disease or those who grind their teeth while sleeping are also susceptible. In the last two examples, we also need to address the underlying cause right after reinforcing the loose tooth. This is the only way to make sure it won't happen again in the future.

What We Can Do With a Loose Teeth

Unfortunately, people still hesitate to see us even if their tooth is in danger of falling out because of what they perceive to be an expensive dental work. However, you can't really know without consulting with us first.

In most cases, securing the tooth is a simple enough process and won't require that much expense. For instance, expect about $100 to splint one tooth. In some instances, you don't even have to do anything. If the tooth is just slightly loose, just leave it alone and it will tighten up on its own over time. Just make sure to avoid touching that tooth or taking care to chew around it.

Dental implants and bridges are some of the procedures available to you in case your teeth are knocked out due to a sports injury or motor vehicle accident. Unfortunately, they will cost you're a few hundred bucks. See your insurance company for coverage or deductibles before seeing us.

However, if you are a teeth grinder, you need to purchase a mouth guard to protect your pearly whites. On average, the product will cost $400-500. As to gum disease, we need to treat the problem also to protect the rest of your teeth.
