Knocked teeth

DS has come home saying he was pushed over today (accidentally) and he must have gone splat because he noticed his teeth were bleeding. This was on grass rather than the yard. They look fine now and nothing is hurting/bothering him.
If I go to an emergency dentist will I be wasting their time? They don't seem wobbly or anything. Just need a bit of reassurance please!

Get him checked over tomorrow with your regular dentist; give them a ring first thing 8.30 ish.
You don't say how old your DS is, but if these teeth are adult teeth-it's pretty usual to X-ray the traumatised teeth as a base line, even if there's visual injury.

If the affected teeth are baby teeth, it's very important that your DS can bite together without impediment & the teeth aren't mobile enough to be an airway risk.
