I am Dr.Neha Gupta (dentist
) and am glad to address to your query here.
Here are a couple of situations in which your teeth can move:
There is a natural tooth movement that occurs throughout your life.
If you are missing a tooth, the teeth on either side can move to fill in that space, and the tooth that normally chews against this tooth will also move. This is a serious situation that can lead to TMJ
, or damage to other teeth.
If you have advanced gum disease
, your teeth can also move because of that. If you have spaces between your teeth, and your teeth are a little loose, this is probably what is happening to you. A loose tooth is an entirely different matter.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at healthcaremagic through my profile directly.
