This morning my 15month old fell and hit his mouth pretty badly. His left front tooth was knocked inward and bled quite a bit. I have noticed over the last hours or so that it seems to be straighter which is a relief. When it first happened I was convinced that it was going to fall out right away.
I have already called the dentist and I could go in for an xray but that won't treat anything. I have to keep an eye out for any discoloration of the tooth.
So my question is...
Has anyone experienced having their childs baby tooth get bent and then realign itself and not have nerve damage to the tooth? If something like this has happened to your child what did happen with the tooth? I am still debating whether or not I should take him in. They were fine with me keeping an eye and calling later for an appointment if needed.
I am really nervous that the tooth is going to have to be pulled as a result of this injury. I guess I want to have some hope that it will heal itself.
