Damaged tooth

Posted by: Altalia  (9 years ago)
My daughter’s front tooth was broken down the gum line two days ago. She does not complain of any pain. The tooth is not wiggly or anything. Should the tooth be removed now or wait for it to come out naturally? Any help would be great!

It would help if you said how old your daughter is, so we would know whether the tooth is permanent or a baby tooth.

She's three years old and it's a baby tooth. I was wondering if it is fine to wait until the tooth comes out naturally.

You risk the tooth abscessing and the pain and that infection it will cause.
