My sister just turned 6, she had a something we thought it was a tooth growing from the top of her gums. My mother started to loosen the tooth. Just today she pulled it out and it was longer than usual the part that was coming out from the top came out as part of the whole tooth is this normal? should we be worried? This past week we have been trying to make an appt at the Dentist and they had their computer system down this whole week. the tooth looks creepy we just hope her next tooth comes out.

mmm... I don´t know if this is normal (that the tooth is like that) but she is at a normal age to start loosing her teeth. Have you tried calling the Dentist to ask him about it? I mean, calling and ask to talk to him. I recall a conversation I had with my father (who is a retired Pediatrician) and he told me one of my aunts was born with "something" that had grown in her mother´s uterus. It didn´t grow attached to her but it did come out after she was born. It looked like a baseball, but had a few grown teeth and some hair and one eye. He explained this to me by saying that most pregnancies start as twins, but most of the time, one of the babies never gets to be fully grown. I´m not saying this is your sisters case, but I think that as weird as that tooth looks, maybe isn´t something to worry so much about. Still, the professional is the one that can answer that question. Sorry I can´t help.
