Re: Extract slightly loose?
1) Not likely, with mobility to the point a patient usually notices, there is no real option other than extraction. This is because mobility that large is due to bone loss, which is irreversible.
One very rare exception is heavy grinding on one tooth will cause it to become loose in the socket, removing the pressue and using a nightguard will help only if there is no bone loss.
2) If there is no cavity and its only the mobility, no, there is no need to rush. If there is an infection, its critical to remove it asap. Based on what info you have given, its likely a bone loss problem, so no rush.
If you are looking for a good dentist, try looking for a private office with only 1-2 dentists, ONLY one location. Large offices or multiple office practices have to focus on production to stay in business and are not as patient centered. Small private practice offices you will pay more for, but the service and trust you get is much better and very worth the price. This is because they are usually more interested in keeping a patient long term, rather than drill/fill/bill and drop.
