User :   but i constantly feel the toothemight come out
User :   why is it so
Doctor :   for how many days are you on the antibiotics?
User :   4
User :   dose has finished
User :   no pain absolutely
Doctor :   Dental carries damage the structure of the tooth, and the infection further hampers the tooth and surrounding structure.

Doctor :   Continue with the antibiotics as suggested.
Doctor :   If the pain has come down, it suggests that the infection is down.
Doctor :   Report to your dentist, who can now plan for RCT.
Doctor :   Have you followed?
User :   if i delay the RC then it might come out?
Doctor :   Let me explain.
Doctor :   The loose tooth that you feel now,
Doctor :   is because of the gum weekness that has probably developed because of the inflammation
Doctor :   This will improve as the inflammation settles.
Doctor :   I expect the inflammation to be down now,
Doctor :   and the gums to strengthen.
Doctor :   And as tooth is attached deep down.
Doctor :   Just gum weekness will not cause tooth to fall off, untill there is forcible removal.
Doctor :   Hence you need not worry.
User :   if i move the tongue over the tooth i can sense the weekness
Doctor :   Report to your dentist, who will plan for RCT.
User :   can i delay the RCT by 2 days
Doctor :   Yes, this should be fine soon as the inflammation is down.
User :   will it make conditions worse

Doctor :   Once this is done, you can save the tooth for longer time

Doctor :   If the tooth falls, the opposite tooth in the opposite jaw
Doctor :   loosens
Doctor :   and problems with chewing
Doctor :   The local anesthesia is given not to cause pain

User :   why not give full anaesthsia
User :   as in surgery
Doctor :   If you are too afraid, then they can give
