Loose teeth question Kelly&Coralie 1 child; Rochester, NY, United States 56009 posts

Cora lost one of her bottom front teeth on march 11th



The other one became loose around the same time, but hasn't fallen out



How long does it take a tooth to fall out? The other one came out 2-3 days after I noticed it was loose.

8 days since I've seen it be loose.

When do you think I should call the dentist? 2-3 weeks?

My DS is at 3 weeks now. He is so afraid to wiggle the tooth because for some reason. We talk to him about it, but he is still afraid.

Why call the dentist? I wouldn't. Just let it fall out when it falls out.



Rissa's can take a month sometimes to fall out.

From what I have read, sometimes they don't fall out on thier own and it can lead to infection and stuff


I should know better than to google this. I get too paranoid

Yeah, don't google things... :)



I wouldn't worry too much about the tooth falling out unless it causes a lot of pain (extreme)/changes color or the gum looks different in that area.
