Shifted front tooth

    Just found this group and wondering if someone can shed some light on
    something that's worrying me.
    About 2 weeks back I was eating out and after the meal I noticed that
    one of my 2 front teeth had shifted back by a little bit. Either that
    or slightly twisted to the side.
    There is no pain or discomfort and the tooth still feels firm in the
    gum. It feels like there is a slight increase in sensitivity to
    pressure but it could be I'm worried and making it up. Otherwise the
    tooth looks and feels fine.
    I have an appointment with my dentist in 2 weeks so she can check it
    out. Is this something that should be of more concern or am I just
    worrying needlessly? I have read that teeth can naturally shift of
    there own accord without any nasty underlying cause.
    Many thanks,

    Hi Webby,
    I just registered with my first dentist since moving to the US. The
    lady on reception was very pleasant and helpful. She didn't seem
    concerned when I told her but said that if anything else develops then
    I should contact them straight away. Hmmmm. Think I'll ring them in the
    morning and try and get in sooner. Either that or spend the next two
    weeks worrying.

    Teeth shift slowly over a long period of time.

    Shifting during/after one meal is cause for concern.
