Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Shaking tooth means tooth mobility. Causes are various like periodontal (means your gums are loose not enough to support the tooth, or because of less oral hygiene). Other reason might be trauma, broken, and shaking (mobile) tooth.


Investigations to be done:

Iopa.

Treatment plan:

Proper oral hygiene.
