Loose tooth, what can i do to firm it up?
I am a 37yr old male, i have this loose tooth on my upper jaw, and is the second last one, left side. I sometimes get an irritating pain and with a pain killer it stops the pain. This happens every 2nd- 3rd week. How can i firm up that loose tooth, or what should i do..?

You first need t odetermine the cause of the problem. If it is gum disease and the bone/gum is severly affected there is not much you can do to firm it up. Have an x-ray taken to confirm whether this is the case.
