my mother has a very loose front tooth

Q. My 85 year old mother has a very loose tooth – front/bottom – is there anything that can be done to stabilize the tooth.

A. Splinting the adjacent teeth together can often stabilise teeth. However the cause of the problem must be diagnosed first and treated before splinting can be decided upon – the tooth may not be saveable.
