Re: Take dd to the dentist or not?

You could wait until Monday, but I'd at least call and explain what happened. They may want to do an x-ray to see if there was any damage. My 5 year old did this right before she turned 3. She had no damage but her tooth did turn light gray.

When this happened with Jordan, we went to the dentist in the AM. She said if this happens again either:

1. Get to a dentist ASAP so they can put it back in place.
2. Put it back in place yourself ASAP.

They couldn't do anything else for it.

I think I'll definitely call the dentist tomorrow and at least talk to them, but I'll see if she'll let me put ice on it tonight

This is what it looked like. Thankfully, the displacement was just from the swelling around the gums. It's back to normal, although the tooth is a bit darker than his other teeth.

I know. I cried. I didn't know what had happened because I was doing laundry and he was with his dad and his dad's friend. When it was night time, I asked for a hug and kiss and for some reason to see his pretty smile. I was HORRIFIED when I saw his gums all dark and swollen and his front tooth all jacked out of place.
