Help! Top tooth coming through front of gum? Bruised?


I am a bit worried right now .

Daisy's top front tooth started to come through last week and the white line was there for a few days and then there was a little split in the gum and it started to cut through and yesterday I saw a white line on where the tooth next to it will be so I think that is coming too. She hates us looking in her mouth so it is hard to get a proper look. Anyway, she isn't in pain and hasn't hurt it on anything but we were playing on the floor a few minutes ago and she was laughing and her mouth was open wide and it looks like the tooth that had started to cut through is coming through the front of the gum rather than growing down. Not just that but it looks black too. I tried to feel it and tried to get a closer look but she wouldn't let me. Her gum has bled a bit as well.

Has this happened to anyone else? I am wondering if the pressure of the tooth coming has caused a bruise on her gum and that's why it looks black? Do I need to take her to the dentist tomorrow or give it a few days to see what happens? Any advice or experience of this would be much appreciated because I think a lot of you probably know what a worrier I am about Daisy's health !

It did look like my LO's top teeth were coming through the front of the gum at first too but now they are through a bit more they look normal. Cannot help with the bruise though.

Might be a bit of congealed blood under the gum making it look black? You worry because it's what we mums do never feel bad about taking her to get checked sweety. Xx

I thought this yesterday! Thomas has this bit at the top where its starting to darken, asked my neighbours and apparently thats normal! Thats what happens before they poke through. My mum doesnt remember this!! I just feel awful that my poor baby is going through this so early!

My older sons teeth didnt start coming through till about a year old and his gums were so hard that he ended up with blood blisters, the only way they dissapeared were when the teeth came through properly.We gave him so many hard things to chew on to help with it x

Thanks everyone . After extensive googling I think she has an 'eruption cyst' which is like a blood blister or bruise where the tooth is coming through. I'm still not sure why it looks like it is growing through the front though.
