Healthy Mouth, Healthy Kids

Cut Gums



My 2yr old daughter fell off the bed and hit her mouth on something. It was kinda bloody. when i finished cleaning her off, i noticed that a piece of her gum was cut off above her left front tooth. Will this grow back?


It is likely that your daughter's gums will heal without any problems. The fall, however, could have damaged her baby teeth. This is an excellent time to have her examined by a dentist who is experienced in treating young children.
