tooth knocked out
Posted 12 February 2012 - 02:04 PM
I've been googling and calling my GP and the hospital and each place has something different to say - give up on the tooth, it's no good, don't try to put it back in cos it will stunt the adult tooth when it comes in 4 years or so, and the last advice that mum did the right thing and hope it doesn't fall out.
Has anyone's little ones lost a tooth as a toddler? if so, what did you do? If you put it back in, did it stay in and did it go dark?
Sounds so pathetic that I'm so worried about this, it's just a tooth. I guess the guilt is overwhelming me and with 9 days til the next baby is due my hormones are not the most stable.

Im always amazed one of mine hasnt cracked a tooth or done some more serious damage with some of the things they do! And this is all within seconds. No time for me to react and grab them! (OK, some times there would have been time to react if I was watching them and not making myself a tea )
I hope you feel better soon and I hope the missing tooth doesnt cause too many problems. If nothing, it'll make a great story at her 18th!

I don't have any experience myself but my step-MIL's son knocked one of his teeth out when he was just a toddler and she put it back in too - and his teeth are fine now, didn't affect his adult teeth at all.

I know there is a paediatric dentist in Crows Nest (are you in Sydney??) - look them up and they will have an emergency number to call.
Harry chipped his front teeth at about 10 months (slipped in teh bath) and I felt TERRIBLE. I know how bad you feel now - no matter anyone telling you not to. Of course you do you poor thing (and pregnancy doesn't help). It is not pathetic to worry - we all would do the same.
I knocked MY tooth out at 4. Well, it didn't quite come out but ended up all black and absessed so it was eventually pulled. I thought I was VERY cool as I had a few years when people thought I was much older than I was as they'd always ask my age.... I loved it

I would maybe PM Puggie and see if she could answer too. She has a dentistery background.
FWIW I had my first tooth pulled out when I was 2, and a few other afterward do to issues. I had no front teeth for a few year, but my teeth came through straight, only one bottom one slightly out of crooked.
