Tooth Injury: My five year old daughter got hurt on her top front tooth. She bled profusely. She was taken to the dentist.
The dentist extracted her tooth as it was a little loose before the accident. She is on antibiotic and pain killers.
I want to know will it affect her permanent teeth growth. When will she will get her new tooth and will they be straight or crooked? ...Visitor from United Arab Emirates
If the jawbone wasn't affected by the trauma, she should be OK with growing a normal secondary tooth normally.
Assuming this was a baby tooth, her secondary will eventually emerge. When it does, she can be examined to make sure it erupts normally. Treatments can be applied to assure normal growth, if needed.
A periodontist would be the best expert to consult with for assessing her current bone quality where the tooth was removed.
