She face-planted earlier, and I guess hit hard enough to jam her inner front lip into the space between her two upper front teeth <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I didn't even realize it at first. Now things are so swollen that it's stuck!<br><br>
We tried to gently pry her teeth apart a bit to allow the lip to come out, but no go.<br><br>
Do you think this is something she should be seen by a doc for? I'm wondering if blood supply might be cut off to the tissues since the teeth are pinching so tightly.<br><br>
Any other ideas?<br><br>
The doc office is supposed to be calling us back, but they'e all at "lunch" (it's 2 pm here) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Well, we took her in--and it wasn't that her lip was wedged in there! Her frenulum is just so swollen that it looks like a piece of lip stuck between the teeth. Apparently it's not uncommon (not surprising)--the doc said everyone always thinks that it's a stuck piece of lip. So file that away for future use!<br><br>
So, she's fine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Geez, I just feel like the biggest worrywort first-time mama sometimes! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br><br><br>
Thanks for your concern!

I will keep this for later use. Ds is always smashing his face and busting his lip. So I just might need this.<br><br>
I'm glad she is ok.

Hi 👋 I know your post about your LO having a swollen frenulum was back in 2008 but my son has this after banging his mouth yesterday. I was wondering how long it took to go down? and if your LOs mouth went back to normal? Thanks 😊
