The reason I am asking is because well my oldest daughter. She has been telling me for weeks her teeth were hurting so I kept checking for a loose tooth (nothing), I then thought maybe she needed to see a dentist. She just turned 5 and a half October 29th. Well today she tells me again her teeth are hurting so I told her daddy we are going to have to take her to the dentist then she told me it was hurting bad so I asked her to come over to me and I checked and sure enough it was loose. Not really loose, but deffinalty loose. I thought that was really young to have a loose tooth? Also she started screaming when we told her it was loose. She said she doesn't want to loose her teeth. I told her it was fine the tooth fairy would bring money. I also told her another tooth would grow back and she asked when lol. I think she is more afraid that she wont be able to eat because she asked me if she can still eat lol.
So my questions I guess are:
1.) what is the average age to loose a tooth?
2.) How long after it becomes loose does it normally fall out and when does another grow back?
3.)I am not even sure of how much to leave?
4.) How to I get her not to be so scared about it? She has been walking around since I told her with her hand over her mouth lol.
5.) what if she wont eat. How do I get her to eat?
6.) how do you leave money under a pillow and take a tooth without the child waking up? My kids wake up as soon as you open the door.
7.) what do I do with the tooth after the tooth fairy (lol) taqkes the tooth?
Sorry so many questions as you can see I am new to this lol.
