ds teeth

ds (10) has only lost 8 milk teeth , the classic 4 top and bottom. One of his top incisors(?) - one in from front - has come through quite crooked and the gum behind/above today looks pale and is sore. Dentist took a fancy all round xray a few weeks back to check position of adult teeth coming through but hasn't called yet to say there is any issue. How long would you leave it or should I ring again tomorrow ?

hope it goes ok tomorrow, sounds like it's quite uncomfortable for him, poor lad!

thanks he has a high pain threshold so this must be really bothering him.

ah bless him he's cutting a tooth ! Dentist has looked at xray and they seem ok-ish in alignment so it is a case of it now displacing the one below, hopefully fairly soon.
