Question:
My child fell while running and hit her mouth on the concrete. Now her front tooth is turning grey. What could be the problem? What is the best solution? ...John in CA

Answer:
John, hi and thank you for the question. Usually, whenever a child falls and bumps their teeth, the teeth will usually change color. Do not be alarmed by the color change. The two things that I look for when a fall occurs is: can your child still eat/drink hot or cold foods? and an abcess which will be present above the tooth that was bumped.

If either of these two things occur, these are red flags and need to be addressed by your pediatric dentist. If not, still consult your pediatric dentist so he/she can take radiographs of the accident to make sure that there is no damage. Again, color change is very common whenever a fall occurs. I hope this has helped.
