Default Are teeth supposed to be a LITTLE loose?

Are your teeth supposed to wiggle a tiiiiiiiny bit or should they not budge in the slightest bit? I can feel this little clicking when I put my tongue between two teeth, and it's starting to concern me.

mine wiggle a little bit sometimes. I have nightmares where my teeth are like sloppy loose. Well maybe not nightmares, but bad dreams. I don't know why but its a really scary idea to me.

If you have gingivitis they could be loose. Your teeth shouldn't move. Maybe try flossing to strengthen your gums.

Bad dreams about teeth coming out==subconscious fears about lack of control over your life.

no your teeth aren't supposed to be loose. you probably have gum disease (worse than gingivitis). flossing would have prevented it. however at this stage you probably need a scaling and root planing.



to remove all that calculus (hardened plaque) from under your gumline which makes the gum not stick to the tooth anymore which is a likely reason why it's loose.

and now i'm going to go floss like i do every night having had that scaling & planing once inflicted upon me. my teeth weren't loose yet at that point and all my deep gum pockets fully returned to normal since i started flossing every day.

What he said - the wifey is going to dental school at Marquette and she gave a resounding "No". She says to floss, too.

I have Gingivitis. If I don't floss every day, they creak. If I do, I have no problems whatsoever.

I was told at the dentist that when your gums become infected if eventually affects the bone in your jaw such to the effect that it degrades them. When the bone degrades, the teeth become loose.

Weird. I floss every day, and the doctor told me my gums were very healthy. When I say they move a bit, I'm talking like maybe a millimeter to either side.

Tomorrows query; "How bad does a root canal hurt?"

Start flossing and/or get a dental pick ASAP.
Also use Listerine to boot.

mine move a tiny bit. And the dentist tells me I have good teeth. I think a little tiny wiggle is normal.

I recently went to the dentist after avoiding them for the past 3 years and finally had my cleaning done (over 2 hours). I was told the importance of flossing everyday and that i woudln't have that many problems if i flossed everyday. Since then, I've used Waterpik flosser

For those who are still using Listerine, look into the Biotene mouthwash. For everyday use it's the best as it doesn't contain alcohol and make your mouth dry out. Cottonmouths should look into this

edit:
i also have been using the Sonicare Elite which I've been very happy with

Not at all. Lots of horror stories, no results. I wasn't even sore after I had one.

i have braces on and it's normal from time to time for my teeth to be loose since they are moving to new positions, but i don't know about after the braces come off.

Not at all unless you are a huge pussie or something. The worst part about a root canal is that it is time consuming and feels strange, but it doesn't hurt at all. Even after the local anesthesia wears off it doesn't hurt that bad at all.
