No, it's perfectly possible to wiggle a tooth, especially a lower incisor. They're designed that way to take up some of the "shock" when chewing.
Thought you had an appointment today to get this checked?

That's the trouble with being retired, you forget what day it is, no more Monday morning feeling :)

Anyway, don't worry about your gums, you'll be fine.

BTW I do like York, it's a lovely city, especially at this time of year when all the daffodils are out. Do they still do the booze cruise on the Ouse? :) I enjoyed that the last time I was there.

Thank you! Yes it's nice and I think so, although haven't heard much about it this year!

Hiya. Mines exactly the same however does not bleed or feel ‘wriggly’ when I floss the whole piece of gum detatches between the teeth- very freaky. My dentist was not worried about this at all. Hope this helps x x

It's called a split papilla, not a big deal but easy to remove surgically if it bugs you.
