last week i got a call from school to say my son had 'had a bump' and i should come and see him. when i got there he had bashed his mouth and one of his teeth was hanging out.we had to go to the dentist and she extracted it. all was well-ish.
yesterday i got another call from the school to say ds had had another bump and i should come up. this time another tooth had been completely knocked out and another tooth loosened. there was blood everywhere-even on his glasses.
i have kept him home today just to have a calm day and make sure he is alright. he also needs to have have hot salt water mouthwashes[went back to dentist yesterday who was to see him again}
really he will be ok to go back tomorrow but i don't want to send him-i feel like i can't trust them to take care of him and i know that is probably irrational but it's how i feel
his mouth is a mess-he has a big gap and his speech is a bit slurred/lispy because of the gap. the gum is very bruised.
he's 6. his teeth were rock solid inhis gums. the dentist x rayed his moth and could tell by the position of the adult teeth that the teeth were not ready to come out! plus-the tooth that had to be removed had a log root still-it was quite solid and comfy where it was!
on friday he was smacked inthe face with a gate. i have raised it as an issue with the school as the gate shouldn't have been open. yesterday he was running and collided with another child head on.
I'd be a bit have they told you exactly how it happened? I mean once, yeah ok probably an accident but to have the exact same thing happen just a week later? has your DS been playing any particular game or is he just really clumsy? I think you need to go to the school and get to the bottom of it I wouldn't be happy at all if they haven't given you a proper explanation. Btw hope DS is ok and good luck
I can understand why you are anxious and I would probably keep him off until Monday - just to give you both a chance for recuperate but it does just sound like a horrible coincidence that they two accidents happened within such a short time
I remember dsd knocked her tooth out at nursery when she was about 2 (she was climbing and fell). I was a bit about it at the time but then a couple of months later, she fell off her bike when she was with us and knocked her other one out. These things can happen anytime/anywhere I suppose. She's 6 now and still hasn't got her adult teeth through
