My daughter fell this afternoon and had some slight bleeding

Customer Question

Hello my daughter fell this afternoon and had some slight bleeding on two of her top teeth. She is 3 so they are baby teeth. The teeth are not loose and the blood was minimal. It was just bleeding along the gum line above the teeth. Should I be concerned and take her to be evaluated?
JA: Have you noticed any swelling in the gums? When was your last visit to the dentist?
Customer: Nope no swelling and everything looks fine. It was 6 months ago
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the dentist can help you best.
Customer: More information?

Hi yes an evaluation asap is very important. Spontaneous bleeding can have many causes. She needs a clinical exam and radiographs of the area.

Has she seen a pediatric dentist yet - she should have had her first visit at age 1.
