I would recommend seeing the dentist. They may want to do some Xrays to ensure the adult tooth beneath is not damaged.

Does this help?

Does it need to be done immediately?
Pediatrician: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 1 month ago

I would recommend giving the dentist a call today (or tomorrow if the office is already closed). They will likely have her eat a soft diet for a few days to allow the tooth to re-implant into the jawbone. If they feel it's necessary, they can advise you over the phone if you need to come in for an Xray.

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.
