Long story short-My daughter fell into me when we were playing and knocked my tooth loose w/a toy. No harm-Everybody told me it would fix itself. Well, this past week it started to really hurt! I was in tears. So I found a dentist that takes payments and such, I went today to find out if it was broke. Well, it's not. My teeth are actually wonderful. But, I have this infection in my gums-which causes bone loss. (I started to tear up here, I tried so hard not to.) I guess this infection caused me to have some gum disease, a bad state of it. It can cause my teeth to fall out...etc. I started to cry. She told me it's okay, it happens to lots of younger people...it's very common, and can be fixed, and my tooth is going to be okay and I'm lucky I caught it. She was just very nice. I'm still very upset, but not as bad now. I'm just not looking forward to my next appts. It's gonna hurt.
Has anybody had this problem? Did it get fixed?

Get a second opinion ASAP on your teeth diagnosis. Some dentists are quacks and just looking for $. You will find that diagnosis' vary greatly from dentist to dentist. You may need nothing done, just a good cleaning.
