Damaged teeth during childhood can have surprising impacts down the line. This is why seeing a dentist as soon as possible is the best way to prevent future problems.
If a child loses a tooth, here’s what to do:
– Act quickly, as a tooth has only one hour to live being knocked loose.
– Clean the tooth gently.
– Reinsert the tooth into the socket.
– Get to the dentist right away.
– In some cases, a root canal will need to be performed.
“Down the road, a child may have nerve damage that relates to early tooth trauma.”
