My oldest (who has Aspergers) lost his first molar Wednesday morning. During supper Wednesday evening he kept putting wedges of carrots in the empty spaces in his mouth.....it wasn't until after dinner, when he was getting ready for bed, that he complained of the blood in his mouth...he had apparently NOT been putting the carrots in the right spot, instead wedging them in front of his incisor, so now his incisor is tilted at a bizzare angle, hanging over the next space (where the molar was). It bled pretty good.
So today we will be going to the dentist today...to see if he has loosened his adult tooth, or else he might have lost his baby teeth out of order? (fingers crossed?)..... I asked him if it had been painful and he said it was...so IDK why he kept doing it...poor baby...
I just don't know how to help him understand such things. This is the 2nd time he has done it. He had a slightly wiggly tooth several months ago, when flossing he hooked the floss under a corner and ripped the tooth out!
