  • Bruised gum will heal on its own but it would be better if you take your daughter to a dentist for evaluation.  Dentist may take an x-ray to see that no damage has occurred to teeth and erupting teeth are not affected. You can take her to a pedodontist who is specialist in children dentistry. By the time, you take her to a dentist; you can apply orajel on lips or bruised gums if there is pain present.
