My 7 yr old granddaughter fell off her bike and chipped her two front teeth, one is half broken and the other is slightly chipped. She has already shed teeth and I would like to know will she shed teeth again so thay they will grow back correctly, or do we need to have her teeth fixed? ...Barbara in DE
Barbara, if your granddaughter has already lost those two teeth then she will not lose them again and the ones that have been fractured are permanent teeth. I would definitely go see your dentist and have the teeth examined and treated. If she is experiencing any discomfort while eating/drinking, go see the dentist ASAP.
