i think that you can still have baby teeth when you are nine....sure i knew someone who still had a baby tooth left at the back when she was 15!!
not sure what you would do other than call the dentist tomorrow - have read though in the waiting room before that ifthe tooth falls out not to rinse it and to put it backinto the gum and hold it there until you get to the dentist as they can apparently do something with it
although this is more for if they get knocked out
i think it must be a baby tooth though cos it would surey have been really painful if it was an adult tooth and it would be really painful now as the roots are really deep i think
Thanks for getting back to me. She is in pain but I've decided to take the emergency dentist advice and send her and DH ;) to have it looked at this evening as they said if it is an adult tooth there is more chance of saving it if treated quickly.
It's her baby tooth. DS1 (9) lost a canine a few weeks ago (I'll find thread in a minute) - cue massive panic. Rang SIL (dentist) and she said canines (and pre-molar thingies) go at aged 9. He's since lost 3 other teeth.
