Now one of my top front teeth is numb.

It happened about 15minutes ago. Dc (4) jumped up as I was kneeling down to help him and he caught the tooth with the top of his head.

The dentist shut at 5. There is no blood and my tooth doesn't seem loose but it is definitely numb.

I've taken 2 paracetamol (can't take ibuprofen), have soup for tea anyway, so is there anything else I can or should do other than hope it's all ok and ring my dentist in the morning?

You have probably bruised the nerve temporarily (if that's the correct term)

I get that numbness when mine headbutt me regularly

Should be Ok but if it goes grey or wobbles then do go and get it seen to x

Thank you Rooners thanks that's the reassurance I needed until I see another adult much later tonight grin

OP, hope it's ok. Bruised sounds about right. Almost definitely nothing to worry about. I would mention it at your next check up, no need to be seen before then unless it's causing you problems

My 4 yo knocked my filling out by head butting me a couple of weeks ago! Hope you're ok.
