My 6 year olds top two teeth have been loose but not yet at the stage of dangling from a thread. If I had to guess they might have been ready in a couple of weeks. Yesterday he got accidentally hit in the mouth. Today his tooth just fell out but a small tooth like looking peice was left. I thought it was the new tooth growing in but when I touched it with a q tip, it is soft and tisue like and moves back and forth. I am thinking maybe his baby tooth fell out a little prematurely and the old root hasn't fully dissolved yet? At first he was ready to go back to cleaning his room, but after he heard me talking about it to my mom, he said it hurt a little, then he fell asleep when I told him to go lie down. I am worried if it that peice will hurt him a lot when he eats or his tongue touches it. Has anyone have any input on this? Thanks.
