This is Dr Aires.How old is your child.If she is 5-6 years old it's possible that what your are seeing is her new adult tooth coming through.I'm concerned that it looks discolored. Could you possibly send me a photo of the tooth that seems discolored.In any case I would not attempt to take out the remaining piece until we can ascertain what is left behind.

I just noticed your child age ---8 It could definitely be her adult tooth you are seeing.In which case you should leave it alone and wait for it to erupt into the mouth.You should consider having the area x-rayed to confirm my evaluation and make sure there is no infection causing the discoloration.Please can you review my answer for me to get credit.Please feel free to ask any more questions you may have regarding your child's tooth.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
