Has anyone ever heard of a baby fracturing a milk tooth? How is it treated, if at all?

fractured tooth or fractured gum line?

my dd1 fell and smashed her face a while ago and all her front teeth were bleeding quite badly around the gumline and the teeth looked pushed forward. dentist said she had a fractured gumline.

he told us if we had took to her to the dentist at the a and e the night she did they would have corrected the fractured but once left there is nothing that you can do. he said her teeth might turn black but they havent yet.

That's just horrible - you poor things! Worth remembering about A&E if we have anything like that!

No its a fractured tooth - looks like a chip I guess.

nope sorry dd1 chipped a tooth when she was very young, but we werent told that it was fracture just a chip and not to worry.

i should add she is not abused. she is v hyper and accident prone. last month it was a split open head, today its her lip <sigh> i am begining to wonder when she will learn.
