2 weeks before my son was going to turn 3, he fell and cracked his front tooth in 2 places. I called our dentist, whom he had had his first dentist appt 1 week prior. He told me to bring him in the next morning. He confirmed my fears, the tooth had to be pulled. Right before the extraction, which went well, they explained our options. We could leave as is or we could put a temporary tooth in there. The temporary tooth was not cheap, but that's not what made us decide not to get it. The fact that he would not be able to bite apples or carrots, which were both his favorites at the time. There were other minor limitations, but that sealed the deal for us. The dentist told us he would have no problems with the permanent tooth coming in as it should. Now due to turn 7 in August, his permanent tooth is halfway in and he is excited. It's a little sad for me because it's just one more indicator that's he's growing up. We had almost 5 years of him missing a tooth, but it just suited him and he was never bothered by not having it. By the way, our pediatric dentist was great. He was given a letter for the tooth fairy explaining why he lost a tooth so early and a little container to put under he pillow. When the tooth was gone, my son did ask for it back so that I could put it back in, but other than that one day, he continued to share his bright smile. Your daughter will be just fine, but you definitely want to get to the dentist.
