When your child bumps their their tooth, the nerve inside the tooth can be affected, causing soreness.  As long as the tooth is not moved out of alignment, extra super wiggly, or chipped into the nerve, you do not need to be seen right away.  Give your child medication as needed for pain, and eat a soft diet for one week.  Call our office at 651-322-5788 for our next available appointment to evaluate this minor tooth trauma.
