losing their teeth? Molly seems to have problems lately. When then become loose, then her gum above her loose tooth becomes very red (almost purple), puffy and very, very sore! A couple of weeks ago, with her last one, I was about to call the dentist to ask about it when it practially just fell out. With that, tho, came TONS of blood. She started yelling to me that she lost her tooth, and there was literally blood spraying out of her mouth - she was standing in the den on my cream colored carpet when she did this! LOL! Not pretty. Anyway, by the next day it was back to normal. Now, she just woke up and has the same issue again. Just wondering if this is common? Unusual? She is also the one of my 2 dd's who bled while teething.

Any experience/advice appreciated!

Thanks,
Wendy

Oh my gawd! Poor little girl! How scarry for her! My dd doesn't bleed but her loose teeth just hang(literaly) for months! I would just make a quick call to the dentist just to ease my thoughts. But maybe there is a vien that runs along her gums right where the teeth come in. That could be the reason the gums puff up and look purple, the tooth is pushing on the vein and causing a bulge or pocket between the front of the gum and the new tooth then as the tooth cuts through thats where the blood can finally come out making it spew all over. Have you managed to get the blood out of the carpet? Hugs to you both

Oh yikes.. I haven't heard of it. I think w/ the next tooth is if starts doing it again, I would take her in. Hope it wasn't to tramatic and your carpets are clean!

Poor Aubrey hasn't lost even one yet. In her (first grade) class there is only one other kid that's the same. She's just dying for one to come out!!

My 6 yr old DD always bleeds alot when a tooth falls out (she's lost 5 so far). After the tooth comes out, there is always this large hanging blood blister looking thing...which then seems to rupture and makes her bleed everywhere. Sort of takes the excitement out of losing a tooth!!! She has another very wiggly one right now and she will not let me touch it, because she is scared of it hurting and bleeding. I want to just yank the thing out. I hate watching it flop around every time she talks or chews. Ick!
