Why would a child have tooth or bone growths on his gums that fall off and leave a bad taste?

Possibly there is an abcess, which is a pus-filled growth on the gums indicating an infection. When these pop, they leave a bad taste because they are filled with infection. He needs to be seen by a dentist. The condition may lead to more serious problems.

The child will leave their tooth under their pillow when they go to sleep and the next morning the tooth will be gone and there will be some money in its place. There is no set amount that could be there.

Check with your dentist if it's a permanent tooth. Generally, you'll be advised to leave it alone until it heals, unless the root is damaged.

Yes, of course, that is the whole purpose. Well, the "Tooth Fairy's" job is to take the tooth from under the pillow and leave a gift, it can be money or whatever she would choose to leave. If the TOOTH isn't there for her to pick up it elimates her job and the story is incomplete. She isn't called the note fairy, or the "iou" fairy, after all! I'd explain to her that, I didn't think it would work, that it is like she is trying to trick the Tooth Fairy, she knows the tooth came out and is waiting for the tooth. But if she still wanted to try I'd let her, but the Tooth Fairy wouldn't be acting like the note fairy, she'd be offended and not take the note. Maybe even leave one of her own, asking for the tooth. Then I'd encourage her to leave the tooth the next night and the Tooth Fairy would be happy to leave a gift, maybe with a note saying it's not nice to try and fool the Tooth Fairy. The Tooth Fairy can leave more than just money, he can leave a note or a small gift. The Tooth Fairy really needs teeth for his castle, so that is why he takes every single tooth.

Typically, the bad taste in your mouth after a tooth extraction is just blood. In order to get rid of the taste, gargle with some salt water and spit. Repeat the process until the taste disappears.

when you lose a tooth you put it under you pillow and the tooth fairy will leave some money:)

This could be due to tooth decay. if there is a metallic taste do you have bleeding gums?

A baby tooth is a tooth which will be replaced when it has been lost by the child to whom it belongs, and replaced with a permanent, adult tooth.

No, The adult teeth forms separate from the child tooth. However if nutrition is not improved while the adult tooth is coming before the adult tooth comes in, there is a higher chance it will be weak and more prone to decay.

Leave a note on the door, saying: "Dear Tooth Fairy, i have left a tooth under my pillow, please, take it"

For a child if they lose an upper tooth the child's parents will plant it in the ground and if a child loses a bottom tooth the child's parents will throw it on the rooftops so the new tooth will grow healthy and upwards.

You should leave it alone if its a baby tooth. It will eventually fall out If its an adult tooth, call your doctor they should help.

The tooth fairy, which in reality is your parents, will collect the tooth, broken or otherwise.

No, the tooth fairy is not real. Parents leave money for the children's teeth.

It moves the food from tooth to tooth and tastes what you are eating. It uses taste receptors better known as taste buds to identify the different tastes of food

Almost every child has experience the 'boogieman' that hides under the bed; in dark corners or in a closet and the 'tooth fairy' comes in the middle of the night to leave money for a tooth left under the pillow. The monster under the bed and the tooth fairy don't even know each other.

my first child got his first tooth at 10 months old. My second child got his first tooth at 5 months old and my third child got her first tooth at 8 months old.
