Baby’s gray tooth

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: coolchange  (8 years ago)
Hello,

My two-year-old son hit his front tooth on the dining table while he was playing with his brother three weeks ago. The tooth turned gray after a few days. Yesterday, he was crying and when we asked him what is wrong he pointed on his mouth. The tooth is slightly loose but there is no visible swelling. Is it possible that the tooth is infected, which is causing this pain? Or could the tooth be traumatized and would heal with a period of time? Please help. Thank you in advance for your answers!

Hey coolchange,

With children, things like this always happen and a discolored tooth is often a result of all that. Nothing to worry though because more often that not, the tooth tends to lighten and regain its original color later. Over time, the tooth should heal and become a lot firmer than it is now. Anyway, it is a good idea to visit your pediatric dentist to rule out any unusual complication (infected pulp, abscess, etc). Good luck!!
