What to Do If Your Child Bumped a Tooth

Many children will experience a fall or an accidental hit in the face that may result in a bumped tooth or a tooth injury. While a bumped tooth may not require a visit to the ER, Dr. Emily Hahn, Pediatric Dentist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, describes what to do if your child bumped a tooth and explains what treatment may be necessary. The exact steps to take will be determined by the age of your child, but the best thing to do to prepare is to establish a dental home by age one so you can have those questions answered when an accident happens.
