I'm sure this has something to do with the teeth drying out, but it seems so odd to me and I've never heard of it. I'm kind of concerned that it means there's something wrong with my daughter's teeth--she has already had 2 large cavities at age 10, and her dad has extremely bad teeth.
Has anyone else ever seen this phenomenon?
Sorry this is years late, but the same thing happened with my 10 year old's teeth! It happened with the last 4 teeth, and his teeth are in great condition - the dentist always comments on what nice teeth he has. So, it may not be related to a problem. I found the following Yahoo Answers post on a similar thing:
Tonight my daughter lost a tooth, and it got my girlfriend and I talking about our childhood experiences with losing teeth.
I told my girlfriend about how my teeth would explode.
She playfully doubted the story so I googled it and what do you know, others had the same thing happen. Ain't the internet grand?
I actually witnessed the explosions twice. Usually one or two days after coming out. One time I had my tooth sitting on my dresser. I was looking at the dresser when it suddenly popped and pieces flew with surprising force.
On another occasion I was laying next to our wood stove in our living room, watching television. God knows why but I had my tooth laying next to me between me and the warm wood stove. I didn't see it pop but I heard it. A fragment hit me on the arm. My parents never believed me. I must say I am a bit relieved (and surprised) to see that it is not totally unheard of. Pretty neat and weird eh?
