Mamas, help, I need some advice! My almost 3 yo dd just had an accident today and whacked her mouth on a metal bar, hard enough to make her cry and completely loose her normal cool for a long time, which is really unusual for her. She was bleeding quite a bit, but it stopped after about 5-7 min.Tonight I finally checked her teeth and both upper incisors are loose and wiggle. What am I to do here? I've heard that they would maybe fall out on their own. We don't have dental insurance to do something expensive that might or might not hold her poor little teeth in place. What do I need to watch out for? I would imagine a possible infection, and what can I do to minimize that? How long will it be tender? Is it better to visit the dentist and have them pulled?
