My tooth has been swallowed up / into the gum. What should I do?
If the tooth is swallowed or up or if the tooth is pressed into the jawbone.
When the teeth of milk pop up in the jaw, there may be a possibility that permanent teeth have been damaged as a result of the accident. However, this can only be determined when the permanent teeth grows. If the child’s teeth are not sitting in their usual place or it is not possible to bite correctly, consult a dentist immediately. A dentist will judge what to do in such a situation – either the tooth will come out, or the dentist will push it in place or the tooth will be worn out.
If the tooth is broken up in the gums, wait until it breaks out again. However, it is a good idea to contact the dental clinic and to report the damage to your insurance company.
