The Strange Phenomenon of Wobbly Teeth


SC has reached that age when the Tooth Fairy has visited twice, and in all likelihood will visit again in the near future.

But, as his teeth have become wobbly I have noticed a strange thing.

You can actually tell which tooth will become wobbly – and no, I haven’t suddenly tuned in to Psychic TV – the wobbly tooth will move away from the surrounding ones.

Sounds weird, I know. But with his first one, I noticed, before we even knew it was wobbly, a small gap appearing between the wobbly tooth and it’s neighbour.

And sure enough a couple of weeks later it was wobble central.

His two front teeth are going to be the next ones to go, as an enormous gap has appeared either side of the pair – there is no gap in between the two wobbly ones …. yet.

But it just seems a really weird thing to be happening. My mum can’t remember if that happened with mine. All I can remember is that somewhere along the lines my baby teeth got replaced with rabbit teeth – thanks though to the modern wonders of orthodontistry they have been manoeuvred back in to a straight line 😉
