If my daughter's permanent tooth was extracted without our permission and we were told it was a baby tooth, what can we do?
Question Details: My daughter had a baby tooth knocked out at the playground. Apparently the accident caused damage to the permanent tooth coming in behind it. The dentist extracted the permanent tooth but had told my husband that it was a baby tooth. They told us the next day that they were mistaken and that it was a permanent tooth. However, they justified the extraction indicating that it would have caused damage or an infection if it was left in. The tooth is in the front of her mouth. We would not have agreed to this without a second opinion or at least all of the info.
