Can Baby Teeth Fall Off In A 21 Month Old Child Can Still Grow Again?
Hello goodnight I want to ask, my daughter is 21 months old, just now she fell while playing and then I checked the upper teeth of the front of the milk. I have no idea that the tooth is loose until the root or just broken. Can the teeth regrow?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, baby teeth that are released will be replaced by permanent teeth which will grow according to their age. Milk teeth that have been released will not be replaced by other milk teeth. In general, the front teeth are completely loose because of the impact experienced by children will not interfere with speech or interfere with eating children and can be left just like that until later the permanent teeth grow themselves.
If you believe that the tooth is completely loose, the child does not complain of excessive and prolonged pain, bleeding is also only a little and can stop itself, then there is nothing you need to worry about. If the child complains of constant pain, continuous bleeding, or you are not sure whether the tooth is completely loose or broken, you should do a check with the dentist for further evaluation. It is necessary to check whether the injury to the tooth injured the blood vessels or innervation of the teeth or not. If you can feel a sharp part in your child's gums, immediately take it to the dentist because it indicates there are parts of teeth that are still left in the gums. Broken teeth require further management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
