Help! My daughters baby tooth came out, but...

I set it up on a shelf and a few days later, i went back and it was laying in two pieces, split in half!

Does this mean she has a problem with her teeth?? She went to the dentist a year ago, and no problems were noted.

I think that this is quite common and typical for baby teeth to break after they dry out. I'll bump this up for you and maybe you'll get another response. You could also post on the parenting board to see if anyone else has experienced this.

Beckysma,

Baby teeth are like adult teeth after a root canal.
As the permanent tooth is coming up it desolves the roots of the baby tooth. Since the roots of teeth have nerves, they have blood flow to them. When the baby teeth loose their roots they have no blood flow and become brittle. that is probably why your daughter's baby tooth fell apart.
As long as you have fluoride in your water or she is taking fluoride tablets, she should grow up with strong healthy permanent teeth.

FYI: I've been in the dental industry for over 23yrs.

Take care...
