My daughter turns 5 next month. She has a mouth full of pretty baby teeth. She's had a cough and has been congested for the last couple of days. I got a quick look into her mouth last night.. it turns out she has an ADULT tooth coming in directly behind two of her front baby teeth on the bottom. Hurm. I thought baby teeth were supposed to fall out BEFORE adult teeth came in?

One of our daughters had the same thing happen. If the baby tooth doesn't line up with the adult tooth, the roots don't get destroyed as the adult one comes in. She needs to see the dentist, and it probably will need to be pulled. Sorry. We have a whole box of baby teeth with pointy little roots on them, where they were pulled at the dentist office. VERY expensive teeth for the Tooth Fairy, I don't mind telling you!
