Question:
My son is 10 years old. The second to last tooth at bottom broke. Is this a major thing? Is it a molar? It's new to me as a mom, but it didn't have a root to it. It's a tooth that was capped. Will it grow a new one? Kara in LA

Answer:
Kara, the tooth that was fractured/cracked was a primary/baby tooth and was one that he was supposed to lose. Yes, he will get a new tooth and the reason that there was no root was because the new tooth had resorbed/eaten the baby tooth's root. Not to worry
