First Aid for a Knocked Out Tooth

Dr. Adam

From central Texas, I spent most of my young professional career advancing my knowledge and becoming a board certified pediatric dentist. Unfortunately, I have experienced an occupation ending disability and had to sell my practice. After selling my practice, I have since committed my efforts to spreading expert opinion to parents regarding the oral well-being of their children. Thanks for stopping by and please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

      And I do have a question actually? What would I need to do if a 7 year old broke the tooth in half so part fell out and part was left in the gum? Surely you wouldn’t try and stick it back would you?

      • Dr. Adam says:

        You are correct! At that age it is possible that the portion of the tooth that broke in half is actually the baby tooth, and what you see in the gum is the permanent crown. Always verify with your dentist if you are not sure. If it is actually the permanent tooth that broke in half, then that will be a lifetime of potential issues for the kiddo unfortunately.

        Thanks, and keep ’em coming.
