      Default wisdom teeth extracted now tooth next to the site feels a little loose

      I had 2 wisdom teeth extracted on 20/4/2012 in hospital under local anaesthetic, last night i noticed my molar next to the extracted site (bottom left molar) is a little loose, I have never had a tooth extracted before, let alone dental work so im anxious as i dont want to loose anymore teeth. What would you reccommend i do?
      Thanks for reading this

      Sometimes the dentist doing the extraction uses the next door tooth as a fulcrum to apply pressure to extract a tooth. It can cause a little bit of mobility and tenderness in the fulcrum tooth but it doesn't do any harm in the long run.
      Try to keep to a soft diet and try very hard not to wiggle the loose tooth too often to "check on it", that way it'll get the chance to recover in peace.

      Thank you Gordon, because that totally helps explain the feeling I have in the molar next to my extracted tooth.
