Hi doctor,

My son is 12 years old. He bit a cookie yesterday, and it has hit his tooth. Now, he has a pain in the tooth. What to do now?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If it is a permanent tooth then, wait for a day or two. If there is no sign of any visible fracture line, allow them to heal after sudden blunt trauma. On considering his age, if it is a milk tooth, then it has to be removed. If there is a pain, then consult a dentist soon and get an X-ray done to know whether there is a fracture in the root.
