Wobbly Tooth, DS Distressed

(5 Posts)

We noticed DS had his first wobbly tooth about 10 days ago. It has progressively got slightly wobblier but still firmly attached IFSWIM.

He has just eaten a sweet (a maoam) and I think he got his tooth caught on it. He is now crying in pain and his gum is bleeding, the tooth is only just attached - should I pull it out so the gum can heal quicker or leave nature to take its course? I personally feel I should leave it but he is begging me to pull it out!

I'd pull it out.

Over and done with then

Dentist here, it may be a bit sore if you try to pull it out (wrap some tissue round it to stop your fingers from slipping) but if you can do it in one twist/pull then it's done! Otherwise subtly give him apples/hard/chewy things to let nature do its course!

Thank you, he has gone off to bed complaining so I'll see if I can work up the nerve tomorrow. Thanks for the tissue tip Racheld33

DD's was like this and she woke up in the morning toothless, I spent a panicky 5 minutes scrabbling around her bed to find the tooth in the morning, which she had thankfully not swallowed.
