loose molar
I'm well over 40 and have had my wisdom teeth, all four, extracted over 20 years ago.  I noticed 3days ago my mouth was sore and back gums alitte puffy when I awoke.  When I felt my upper left back molar it was LOOSE, still is.  Why has it loosened?  No problems from it before.  Will shaking it loose it out for a better extraction experience or make it worse, it's getting sorer?  I don't care to save it, if applicable, I had a really bad experience with a root canal 3 yrs ago.

Mobility of a tooth may result from: acute periodontal infection, acute apical periodontitis, severe periodontal diasease, acute occlusal trauma, bone tumor or cyst. Seeing a dentist is advised.
