my 8 year old slipped and banged his front teeth into some steps.- It seems one of the front teeth is loose.- Will this tighten up by itself? what do we do?

  • It is the young permanent tooth. if the mobility is very less then it will tighten its self but you have to take precautions like not eating or biting any thing from the front tooth at least for 2 to 3 weeks. Avoid hard food and maintain good oral hygeine. but if it is quite loose and pain is there then you have to visit the dentist . He can do splinting. The root of the front permanent tooth is not completed at the age of 8 years. so you have to be careful. for more info on children dentistry you can visit the following link......
