How would you say "to lose a tooth"?
Im writing a story for a class and I want to say that the child lost his front tooth, but i dont know if perder is the correct verb to use.
Al niño se le cayó un diente de enfrente. (The kid lost his front tooth)
Se me cayeron los dientes. Se me cayo el diente. Or if you are walking down the street and you think the tooth fairy is going to get you something as a gift and you accidentaly lost it and now your mad because the tooth fairy wont give you anything then i would use "perder."
I'd say it depends on how the tooth was lost.
If it's the natural growing-up process, then I agree with Luisa, you want "caer". If the tooth was lost due to an accident, though, then it's "perder".
El verbo que debes usar es "caer"...
