Alright so I know you get loose baby teeth because duh you have to lose them to get your adult ones, but my questions is this -

Is it possible to get loose ADULT teeth? And if so, what exactly causes that to happen? And if it can happen, how can you make sure you don't end up having that problem?

Also, how can you help keep a cracked tooth from getting worse? I have one and will have to wait a little bit until I can get to the dentist, but I'm absolutely TERRIFIED that it's going to crack even worse. Right now it's looking like it can be saved, but I'm scared that if it cracks worse, it'll need to be removed. So what can I do to be sure it doesn't get worse until I can get it taken care of?
