Last night my son (age 6) lost his fourth tooth - it's one of the top two front teeth. So this morning I got a better look in there...and saw the new tooth already peeking through....but it's totally crooked....as in: Teeth usually go "east - west"...but this tooth looks like it's facing "north-south"! I hope that makes sense!
I didn't say anything about that, and dropped him off at school. And yes, I'm calling an orthodontist for an appointment (my regular dentist is closed today and I want his recommendation first). But has anyone heard of this? Has this happened to your kid, and what was done about it? This seems awfully young for braces, but I mean this thing is front & center.
At the store this morning, I bumped into a mom I know and told her about the crooked tooth....she said her daughter has one that appeared to slant backwards, but in the past two weeks it's been slowly straightening out, she hopes. So....do new teeth do that? (all his others came in just fine). Should I give it time, or rush him to the dentist, or what? I have never seen a tooth like this!
