I got hit in the mouth with a hockey stick and now my front right tooth is loose, it keeps sliding down and ill keep pushing it back up but if i move i know i could move it back and fourth far and possibly pull it out if i wanted. It is a permenant tooth, so will it be fine if i leave it and not do anything or should i could get it looked at?

  • You should visit the dentist for this. As this is the permanent tooth it is better to save it. The dentist will do the root canal treatment and then he will do the splinting. The splinting will help to retain the tooth and make it firm ,otherwise you will loose this tooth.
