He's nearly 6 years old and this is his first loose tooth. It's in the front on the bottom row. He wiggles it some with his tounge and its been loose over 2 weeks. He also babies the tooth and refuses to eat a lot of things now like apples, chips, pickles, sandwiches...anything he thinks will cause the tooth to move. My question is-is this safe for the tooth to stay loose this long? Can't it get infected or worse? It bleeds sometimes, especially when he brushes.
