Bumped Baby Tooth

IN KEENE, NH

Often trauma resulting in minor movement of a baby tooth requires no treatment.

Look for:

  • 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.
