Injury To The Area Around The Gums And Teeth After Falling In A 2 Year Old Child?
Hello, my child is 2 yrs. Td fell on the ladder the lower part of his canine was missing, it seemed to be swallowed. And the gum meat is also gone (like all holes). Can the gums that are lost like this come back? Also the teeth will grow along with the gums?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Injuries to the area around the teeth and gums can cause teeth to break and disappear. These injuries can be severe enough to cause some of the gums to be damaged as well. This condition can not only trigger pain, but can also cause the child's gums to swell, bleed, and are more prone to infection.
So, how to cure this condition?
Gums usually have excellent regenerating abilities. If the gums are damaged due to an injury, for example, as long as the blood supply and the nerves that supply them are not disturbed, the damaged gum cells can still replace them with new gum cells and the teeth can grow back to normal. For this reason, post-injury management plays a very important role, so as not to cause severe damage to the gums which has the potential to inhibit healing and regeneration.
You should check your child directly to the dentist so that his condition will be evaluated, here is the best treatment for dealing with his complaints. Doctors will usually provide several treatments to treat and prevent bleeding and infection if needed.
At 2 years of age, babies normally still have milk teeth. If it is true that it is a canine tooth, then this tooth will usually be replaced with a permanent tooth at the age of about 9 to 12 years. There are also some children who have teeth growth that is faster, or even longer. This can vary widely and cannot be generalized to every child.
Hope it helps ..
