Orthodontics Ask The Dentist - Edward Leventhal Question:
For a little while it has hurt alot to push in on the area just above my chin. Recently it has started to hurt without force, and there is swelling on the inside of my bottom lip, not on the gums though. Also, I just recently got braces off, and I just put the bottom retainers in for the first time in a week or so, and my front bottom teeth are shifting back into place painfully, and they are a little loose. What could be causing this swelling? And could this be the actual cause of my bottom teeth to become loose? ...Visitor from ME

Answer:
The best advice would be to see your orthodontist asap from the swelling - could be from many causes, gingival swelling from poor oral hygiene, infection, etc...
