My 5 year old dd has a space maintainer on a back tooth. She has complained a couple if times the last day or so about it bothering her. Tonight it came loose a little and is making her guns bleed And is painful. My concern is its really loose on the part that is not attached to her tooth, but the part around her tooth seems tight. I'm afraid that it may come off while she's sleeping an she will choke on it. Should I pull it off of her tooth or is it embedded in her gum? It kinda looks embedded in her gum. I'm stressing out and don't know what to do, please help.
