What to do if your kid has a broken tooth ? 

If your child cracks, chips, or breaks a tooth:

  • Contact your child’s dentist right away.
  • Rinse your child’s mouth with water.
  • Put a cold compress on the face to reduce swelling.If possible, bring the tooth fragment with you to the dentist.
  • One important to-do right now: Keep your dentist’s number in your phone.

Any dental injury, regardless of how minor it may appear, should be evaluated by your child’s dentist because often a baby tooth may not seem very serious, but the root of the tooth could also be fractured or the chip may extend so far that there’s a risk of infection.

  • Your child’s dentist can determine the extent of the damage and suggest proper follow-up care.

The most important thing to remember: “Never, ever try to replant a baby tooth that’s been knocked out,” says Lezli Levene Harvell, D.M.D,, a board-certified pediatric dentist in Newark, New Jersey.
