Her Son Complains About A Pain In His Gums. Mom Discovers An Unexpected Cause!

Have you ever heard of the saying, “You are what you eat”? Well, it seems Kale, the green leafy vegetable, is not the only thing young Kale seems to be munching on. His mother, Sara Guidry, grew concerned when Kale started complaining about a strange pain in his gums. Finally, she took matters into her own hands and decided to investigate.

With a flashlight in hand, Sara asked Kale to open wide so she could take a closer look. To her surprise, she noticed that his gums looked a bit inflamed. But that was not all. She saw something planted inside his gums, but it definitely was not normal. Determined to help her son, Sara quickly grabbed her trusty tweezers from the bathroom cupboard and gently pulled out a fingernail that had somehow gotten lodged in Kale’s gums!

Now, you might be wondering how on earth fingernails ended up in Kale’s gums. Well, it turns out that nail biting, a common habit, was causing more harm than he could have imagined. People often bite and pick their nails due to stress, anxiety, or simply out of habit. While it may seem harmless to some, it can actually become obsessive and lead to injuries like Kale’s.

Sara was shocked when she discovered the truth behind her son’s constant pain. She knew Kale had a habit of biting his nails, but she never realized that the bits were getting stuck in his mouth. No wonder he was in terrible pain!

In total, Kale had a whopping 32 fingernail pieces lodged in his gums. It may sound unbelievable, but it happened. The dentist explained to Sara and Kale that Kale was pushing his nail bits towards the roof of his mouth, causing them to penetrate the skin and get trapped in a pocket between his baby teeth and permanent teeth.

Now, Sara is sharing her story on Facebook to raise awareness among other parents about the dangers of nail biting. She discovered that countless parents around the world were shocked by her story, as they never realized that such a seemingly harmless habit could cause severe pain and discomfort.

Sara’s warning resonated deeply with parents, and her Facebook post has been shared by over a quarter million people. Many parents expressed their concern in the comments, realizing the potential harm that nail biting can cause.

Sara’s message is clear: parents should try to curb this habit in their children as early as possible. If left unchecked, children could end up with nail clippings lodged in their gums—something no one wants to experience!

So, let’s spread the word and help prevent unnecessary pain caused by nail biting. Share this story with your friends and family to raise awareness about this surprising cause of gum pain!
