    Default Just can't get a break... Tooth abscess

    Ds2 has a tooth abscess.

    He fell last December, has a black tooth and now has developed an abscess.

    Has anyone gone thru this with their kid?

    Do they just pull it or give antibiotics first? Does he go under a GA to have it done??

    He's allergic to penicillin so will they even bother to try and save the tooth?

    It's his baby tooth so that's the only upside.

    So over it. Tonsillectomy for ds1 this week, toilet training ds2 with regression, ds3 BF and not sleeping well.

    This sux.

    DD1 has had 2 abscesses. Both were in baby teeth and the dentist pulled the tooth out. No ABs were needed.

    If say they will pull it out the abssess can damage the adult tooth. How old is he they will most likely do a ga

    He's nearly 3. No way he'd be able to do it without GA. Sh1.t.

    So sad, disappointed.

    Off to the GP tonight to get some antibiotics before it gets worse.

    Yeah my dd tripped over and chipped her front tooth at the start of the year and it exposed the tiniest bit of nerve so they took it out under ga (said most likely would go black and abssess eventually and could damage perm teeth) she was 13 months at the time and you wouldn't have known anything had happened if it wasn't for the hysterically crying mother 😏

    Oh I too was shattered when he fell. I always thought black teeth on kids was yuk, and as payback for my thoughts my kid has it. And now this.

    He doesn't seem to care.

    The one good thing is that it might stop him sucking his thumb lol, there won't be a tooth to hold the thumb against!
