My 12 year old son is suddenly complaining of pain when he bites on some foods. I looked in his mouth and there is definitely an unusual tooth. I can't tell if it's a tooth with a problem or a baby tooth on it's way out. I will be phoning the dentist.on Tuesday but wondering if it's anything that needs an emergency dentist with it (very typically) being not only a weekend but a bank holiday weekend

The tooth is a molar type one on his top right side.

Thank you

That rough-looking blob is the baby tooth on the way out. It has been eaten away by the new adult tooth coming through (as normal), so looks a bit pinkish. No treatment required.
