DS whacked in face - Milk tooth hanging on by a thread

DA got whacked in the face today. Lost one, already loose, tooth. One other tooth is now loose and a further one is literally hanging on by a thread. We saw a dentist who said he could remove it, or let DS wobble it free and that it would be out by now.

Worried to send him to bed in case it falls out in the night and chokes him....any experience or advice?!

Put a tissue/kitchen towel over that tooth & snatch it out quickly. The key is to be swift & don't let him fuss.

No way you can put him to bed with that tooth hanging like that-it's just not safe. shock
