My 3 year old son fell & E came completely out. The tooth fell on the kitchen floor & I grabbed it and put it back in his socket within 5 seconds. I did not wash it off. Is that going to pose a problem? Also he has been to the dentist since this happened & he just wants to wait & see him in 2 weeks. How long do I need to keep him from biting foods off with his front teeth? Thank you

  • It would have been better if you have washed the tooth but the positive thing is that you have put it back in the socket immediately and that have positive effect on the prognosis. You should wait at least for two weeks till youe child starts biting hard things from the front tooth.
