My daughter just turned 6 (yesterday) and has lost 4 baby teeth in the past year. Tooth #5 has been loosening up over the past month or so, and is now quite wiggly. With this one, she absolutely will NOT allow anyone to touch it for fear they will pull it out and it'll hurt (normal fear)... The problem is that this tooth (her first incisor, top) has turned from a pearly white to pale bluish and is now showing a dark brown tinge to it, seemingly getting darker by the day. None of the other baby teeth went through this color change, and I'm beginning to get concerned... Is this something I should be worried about? Does anyone know about what might be causing this discoloration or anyone have experience with a similar situation? Any help is appreciated!
