An adult tooth!
Turns out that it’s growing in behind her baby teeth and she didn’t even know that the tooth was there until I told her. Good news is that it clearly doesn’t hurt her. Bad news is that I have visions of having to remortgage our house for dental work.
After temporarily freaking out (that would be me, she thinks that it’s awesome), we Googled it and turns out that it happens in 10% of cases. Apparently we should wait 2-3 weeks and hopefully the baby teeth will fall out. If not, go to a dentist.
What Would/Did You Do?
P.P.S. Have any variations on the tooth fairy?
P.P.P.S. Artemis’ “Favourite Part of The Day” was getting to tell her teacher and class mates that she had an adult tooth coming in. Max and her are the oldest kids in the class so it turns out that she is the first one to get a tooth in. One girl has lost a baby tooth but doesn’t yet have an adult tooth coming in. Max says that it’s because “she eats too much candy”. Not sure who he heard that from…
