Loose Teeth

Recommended Posts

Well I did it! I finally went to the dentist. It's been two years.....AGH!


I read a thread awhile ago about sclero and loose teeth. It seemed a lot of us experience this so I asked my DDS. He said my lose teeth were most likely caused by clenching and grinding at night because he also saw evidence of chips and cracks on my lower teeth.


He said that maybe the tightening of the muscles and ligaments in the face may lead to the clenching at night which in turn leads to the loose teeth.


He did say that he'd do a little research on sclero and also ask a colleague if he's ever run into it.


I have to go back end of the month so I will let you know what he says. Looks like I'll have to wear a mouth guard at night :angry:


Take Care All,


Take care,
