Loose teeth after one week would suggest either the tooth is fractured or the bone which holds the teeth is fractured.
There is lot of hope if bone is fractured, where just like plaster on hand , splinting works like magic.
But if the tooth is fractured, there is very limited scope of saving them. Post your X-ray when you visit your dentist.
As you are already a week late plz visit your nearest dentist soon.Initially he will do certain diagnostic procedure to see the condition of the teeths i.e. vital/non vital, fracture and iopa Xray....etc
Then he will decide his treatment plan.....Splitting (supporting mobile teeth with normal teeth) teeth followed by RCT or might be extraction also if it is a vertical or root fracture
Without wasting any further time please visit your dentist as soon as possible.
Your dentist will perform splinting on your mobile teeth.
Do not touch your teeth or try to move them.
Eat soft diet and away from the affected tooth.
key Advices for you
1) Immediately visit dentist to prevent loss or permanent displacement or mobility of teeth
2) Do not clench or bite hard on teeth
3) Do not show mobility of teeth to others using your fingers as it may increase the mobility of teeth.
4) dont take too hot or too cold eatables.
please visit a dentist immediately. he will splint the tooth(bind the tooth with the help if a wire with the adjacent terth) after a few xrays so that the mobility reduces. after that you might also require root canal treatment for those teeth.. but to save the teeth a visit to the dentist is mandatory
Well first od all you should have visited a dentist immidiately after injury when you knew something wrong inside mouth. Anyeays; visit a dentist and he will make fraud of teeth and will suggest you treatment accordingly. Splinting along with root canal can be done to save teeth but only clinical examination will reveal that. Visit a dentist asap.
You should immediately visit your nearest dental clinic. As the teeth are mobile they should have been assessed and splinted immediately after the trauma. Any further delay could lead to irreparable damage and eventual loss of the teeth. At this stage a physiological splint and occlusal stability are of primary importance subject to tooth Vitality (a measure of the current condition of the tooth)
