Customer Question
Hi, my little girl who...
Hi, my little girl who is 2 years 8 months bumped her top two teeth on her brothers knee yesterday when they were playing. There was a very small amount of blood aroynd the top edges of the teeth at the time. She cried and since has complained they hurt. They dont feel wobbly or anything. I am just concerned they will discolour or there is a problem because she is saying they hurt. Shes reluctant to eat or drink because of it.

Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

This kind of an injury doesn't seem to be so serious. Moreover, the discolouration would happen only over a period of time. Also, the teeth haven't become mobile.

The bleeding is common, that is from the gums.

The pain is due to the concussion. I suggest you take her to a Pediatric Dentist for a X ray to confirm the extent of the injury. Also, a painkiller (in the form of a syrup) will help.

Hope this answers your question. Please leave a positive rating if my answer has helped you.

I do not get credit for it otherwise!

Regards,

Dr Behere

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
