Wow, tonight has been stressful, scary, etc.. Austin had just had a bath and I got him dressed in his PJs. DH was making a bottle while I supervised him in his room. He was crawling on the floor, playing with toys, etc. I had a few clothes to hang up in his closet, so I turned around for a second to get some hangers. Meanwhile, Austin had pulled himself up at his dresser using the drawer pulls. Well, in that split second that I turned to get hangers, Austin started crying. It was that hurt cry, too. I figured he bumped his head so I picked him up and tried comforting him. I got him to calm down for a second and then I positioned him just so where I could see his face and see where he hurt himself. I noticed a little red scratch under his lip, so I decided to check inside his mouth to make sure he didn't hurt anything else. I couldn't believe my eyes... his front tooth was pushed all the way forward, flat against the top of his mouth! I about flipped. I am not exactly sure what happened, but it looked horrible. I immediately had my husband hold him while I called the pediatrician and pediatrict dentist's emergency line. First I spoke to my pediatrician's nurse and she said that as long as it wasn't super loose and hanging by a thread, there really wasn't anything you could do about it since it was a baby tooth. She said that if it was loose, we needed to pull it so he didn't choke on it. That made me want to throw up. She told me not to worry about it though and babies are always knocking out teeth, chipping them, etc. I had my husband check it and it was a little loose, but not loose where it needed to be pulled (THANK GOD). He used his finger and pushed it back into place a little. A little bit later, the pediatric dentist called back and said we did exactly what she would have recommended. Baby teeth are surrounded by cartilage, which is really spongy and easy for the teeth to move around. She said that it would more than likely tighten up overnight and over the next week. She didn't even think I should bring him in to be seen. She said to give it a little time to rest and tighten up. WHEW. I am so relieved. Austin didn't seem to be in any pain after the initial incident, so I am hoping they are right and it will just tighten right up and be normal. I can't imagine my little baby having his tooth pulled. Now, I need to look on amazon for a bubble to keep him in the rest of his life. NOT going through that again.
