This is so weird. The last two teeth that my 10-year old daughter lost--one was last week, and the other was about 4 months ago--exploded of their own free will after they had been sitting around for about two days. I saw one of them do it--it was just a tooth sitting there on my dresser, then there was a light 'pop' sound, and the two halves of the tooth flew in opposite directions.
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?
