Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My permanent incisor tooth number 10 is a little loose and had bleeds once. Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I had gone through your question.

I can understand your concern about your loose tooth. Your tooth number specifies upper left lateral incisor, which has the smallest root among the upper teeth and is vulnerable to any difficult circumstances. I suggest you get an IOPA (intraoral periapical radiograph) done. The probable causes are trauma and periodontitis. If the tooth root is fractured, you may need to remove it. If the whole tooth is mobile, you can get it splinted by a dentist. It will heal and become firm. During the meantime, do not take hard and solid foods like bread, apple, carrot, etc. Regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
