I saw my dentist about this and she was more concerned about having my cleaning done. She said the x-ray shows some bone loss but described it as receding gums and danced around explaining what that means. My front tooth feels like it has grown down and hits my bottom tooth when I speak. It's slightly wiggly but enough to drive me nuts and keep sucking at it. The gums are sore around it and I'm trying not to play with it. Its sensitive to cold. I'm terrified of losing it and I don't know if it will tighten up or if it will get worse. I can't eat I'm so anxious over it. She said no follow up appointment is necessary. I'm on state insurance so I've not seen one doctor that cared to actually help me. I'm terrified. What is bone loss? Will it heal? What do I do??
