It always seemed to me that the teeth of the children fall out on their own when the time has come. I did not discuss this topic with my friends or with my mother. Well, drop out and all right. But as it turned out, not everything is so simple.
As the water looked!
The whole family eagerly waited for Sonya to begin to fall teeth. All the cousins, they have already begun to change, half of the girlfriends – charming toothless, and my daughter could not wait, and when she becomes like everyone else.
The first teeth fell out in time, with them there were no problems. Swayed and fell out on their own, as I imagined. Naturally, I decided that this will continue. In fact, one should never lose vigilance; one must constantly look in the child’s mouth and watch what is happening there.
So I looked in when the incisors reeled. Sonka’s gum was inflamed, red, swollen, and something white glowed through the skin. As always, motherly fear has big eyes. I am an example, that her new tooth has rested against the old one and cannot grow. And the cutter, unfortunately, does not fall out!
The very next day, with shaking hands, I brought my daughter to the dentist. The doctor carefully examined the gum, said that while the old tooth does not interfere with the new. But it is necessary to pull out the staggering cutter, since it is not known how much longer it will hold on to the roots.
The dentist did the procedure and warned us that we should wait another 3-4 weeks and let us go with God.
For some reason, the information that a new tooth will grow only a month after the old one falls out has clearly broken off in my brain. And it has developed into a sort of theorem that this applies to all teeth without exception. And do not rush to pull loose teeth, since the new one will not be released very soon.
This misinterpreted remark by the doctor turned out dear to me.
Teeth out of place
When my daughter’s lower two staggered, she didn’t tell me. Probably afraid that I would again lead her to the dentist to tear a tooth. But all secret becomes clear.
Sonya once laughed, standing next to me, in all 24 teeth, and at that moment I noticed that the two had split in two. Behind the old tooth lurked new. He had already formed and made enough of the gums, but not in a row with all the teeth, but the second row, the tooth grew on the gum inside the mouth.
I was just numb. We were in the village, and there was no one to run to remove the dairy deuce. And so simply it can not be torn out, she sat like a glove, only slightly swayed.
Back at the doctor’s office
When we finally arrived in the city, the dentist deleted this ill-fated deuce. I cried when I saw what my beautiful baby’s mouth looks like.
But the road of fools teaches how popular wisdom says. I began to wait for the deuce on the other side to reel to wrest it at the first sign of reeling.
Why is this happening? Why do all the children have teeth without any excesses, and did I get such a fate?
The doctor said that the roots are very strong. They enable the tooth to loosen, but do not tear themselves to the end. Accordingly, such teeth need help: either constantly pushing them with the tongue and loosening it by hand, to which my daughter categorically says: No! Or pull out when the tooth is ready to fall.
For the near future, our tactics are:
- Keep track of loose teeth, gum inflammation, swelling.
- Try to loosen the tooth as much as possible.
- Rush to the doctor, if the tooth partially broke off, but does not fall out.
Now I carefully watch the baby’s mouth, but I really hope that everything will be fine.
And what problems with tooth loss did you encounter?
