My 3 year old daughter fell and landed on her mouth. Her bottom front tooth is now loose. What should we do. Is her adult teeth still gonna grow in or could that effect her. Please advise. Thank you for your time.

  • If the lower teeth are just loose but are in proper position then donot touch then or irritate them and give very soft diet to child. Make sure that she does not bite from front teeth for atleast a week. These teeth will become stable itself and normally if they are not intruded inside the socket then they donot harm the adult tooth buds. The adult teeth will come normally at age of 6 to 61/2 years. Still it is better you schedule an appointment with Pedodontist who will check the extent of trauma and if there is any occlusal interference or change in position then he will give the instructions accordingly.
