ARRRGGGHHH.... My 5 year old has had a wiggly tooth for a few weeks now, and not getting any wigglier or any closer to coming out. I looked in her mouth last night only to find both her adult front teeth have grown through the gums behind her baby teeth. So now the adult teeth are not going to be pushing out the baby teeth, and sort of growing backwards in her mouth. I rang 3 dentists today as she screamed and screamed and had a reaction to the injection last time she was at the dentist so am dreading getting her sedated.
One dentist told me yes they need to be extracted and they don't do sedation.
Next told me they are fine and that is normal and they will come out when they are ready.
And the school mobile dentist told me to get my daughter to try and pull them out (even the one that is not wiggly) and not to worry about coming to see them unless it starts causing her pain.
So, now I'm stuck on what to do!!! Plus I will need a referral to hospital or something for sedation, as I am not having 2 dentists hold her down while they drill at her, while she is screaming, like blood curdling screaming coz she said she can feel it, and then having a reaction to the injection (Although they told me she had a reaction to the latex gloves not the injection).
Please help, what would / or have you done?
