OT - DD3 knocked her front teeth loose
So on Thanksgiving (11/22 for those not in the US ) DD3 fell and hit her face HARD on something. I don't have more details as she was in her room and was supposed to be napping.
She bit almost thru her bottom lip, and that seems to be healing alright, slowly, but definitely making progress.
She also hit her two front upper teeth, there was a lot of blood that came from around the gum line, and her gum line is still healing and swollen. Her teeth are still quite loose, even gently brushing her teeth wiggles them.
I took her to the dentist on Monday 11/26, they did Xrays and altough there is no sign of infection you can definetly see that there was some damage to the roots of the teeth. I'm supposed to go back in a couple weeks and the desntist said that if those roots are worse, then we'll need to pull her front 2 teeth.
Now I'm fine with pulling them if that's whats necessary, but from everything I'm reading online, they usually just watch for infection and let them fall out on their own if they're going to at all. Even leaving greyed teeth (which I'm sure will happen) in that have obviously died off.
Does anyone have more insight or knowledge on this? I'd hate to put DD3 under anesthsia and do a procedure if it's just the dentist being overzelous.
