My 4 1/2 year old grandson fell and knocked out his front tooth and chipped his other one Friday. Is it necessary to get it checked out by a dentist?
To answer this more complete, please email back the following:
1. When the tooth was knocked out, did the whole tooth come out? (all in one piece with the root?)
2. Was it an upper tooth or lower tooth?
3. Is the fractured tooth hurting?
4. Can you see any color change where the fracture occurred?
5. Can your grandson eat or drink cold/hot foods?
Sorry to make this more of a problem; but this will help me with the answer.
If the answer to question 1 is only part of the tooth came out and if the tooth is hurting or if your grandson can not eat or drink hot/cold, go to the dentist and disregard my questions.
