Are there any dentists or dental nurses on here? I think DS1 has a dental emergency...

DS1 is 10 and has a history of tooth problems. Tonight he claims to have done something to one of his molars biting on a hard piece of chocolate! I can hardly believe that this is really possible, but I have checked that the tooth is a bit wobbly.

He is distraught, having only just recovered from having yet more baby teeth removed (combination of adult teeth failing to come through, and overcrowding). Plus it is his birthday celebration tomorrow and plus from Sunday he is away for four weeks. What the hell do I do? Help!

No, he wasn't in pain, he just said it felt funny. And now this morning it transpires that the tooth came out during the night! What do we we now?

when one of my molars came out (grr also broken by biting on something) I was told the risk was that as the mouth grows, the other teeth will eventually crowd in on that space.

Are you sure the whole tooth came out?

Can you find a dentist's surgery open and call them?

Otherwise, is he going away in the UK and could you pay for him to be looked at at a different surgery?
