11 year old molar question
My son is 11, and he has a loose molar. Its been loose for about a month, but for the past week or so the gum right above it is really red and inflamed. The tooth is very loose, but not quite ready to come out.
I called the dentist, they said that it could be inflamed if something got stuck under the tooth, or just from the wiggling of it.
I am worried that its something else, but they said to give it a day or two and make him do salt water rinses to see if it calms down.
Any ideas if this is normal? And should I panic?
