I've just managed to snag one of my three year olds lower incisors on a towl while drying her face. The tooth has pulled loose. It is still sitting in the gum but is very loose. The child isn't distressed at all by this. What should I do?

  • You must go to a Pedodontist if your child is just 3 year old and lower incisor is mobile. Ideally this lower incisior should become mobile at age of 6 years. So if it has come out at age of 3 years then Pedodontist will examine and find out the cause and do treatment accordingly. Normally it does not happen untill the child has undergone trauma or the tooth is infected.
