Loose tooth after braces come off

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: immunity  (8 years ago)
Hello!

I had my braces on for about four years and 2 weeks ago, I had them taken off. I got my retainer a week later and I've been wearing it day and night. Recently, I noticed that one of my bottom front teeth is loose. It feels so fragile and I am worried, it might break off when I happen to bite down hard on foods. Is this normal? I don't want to lose this tooth. Please help and thank you very
much!

It's normal because during braces the teeth were forced to move to become straight. Eventually thru time, it will become stable again.

Hi!

Do not bite hard down on anything hard. If you eat an apple or carrots for example, cut them into pieces. This will be resolved by itself so do not worry much.
