  • Once it comes through and pushes out to its full extent then you can take him to a dentist to have it looked at. Taking children to the dentist when they are young is a good thing - especially to a dentist who specializes in young children - because it teaches them the importance of visiting the dentist and not to be afraid of them. A good children's dentist will only examine their teeth in a casual visit without all the hoopla of the extra stuff we are used to and the child usually earns a toy after their visit. Young children are allowed to sit on their parent's lap.
    Anyhow, it isn't too soon to start looking into a children's dentist in your area and finding out when they suggest you should bring your child in for his first visit. Perhaps they can just answer your question about his tooth over the phone.
    Best wishes!
