Bumped Baby Tooth
IN KEENE, NH
Often trauma resulting in minor movement of a baby tooth requires no treatment.
- Occlusal Interference = when the child bites down the tooth is in the way and causes pain.
- Tooth mobility that is a risk for aspiration/ swallowing.
These two circumstances may warrant dental treatment; please call us to schedule a visit.
HERE'S WHAT THE DOC SAYS...
We are always looking for the least invasive option to achieve dental health. A crown might become the best option if the patient has a lot of decay, abnormal formation of the tooth, pediatric root canal, or extreme sensitivity. If this is the case, I through options with the parents. Often I suggest a stainless steel crown which is durable and pre-formed in order to make the treatment process easier on the child.
