We regularly treat 2 year Olds for falls and breakages of teeth. We have to save her teeth. After taking xrays we can come to the conclusion whether pulpotomy or root canal is required. Plz don't extract.  Feel free to consult Laser Smile Care Centre. God bless.

Hello a proper clinical examination & X-ray is required before confirming the treatment. As you said if only chipping of tooth has occurred then either filling or pulpectomy procedure need to be done rather than extraction. Children will refuse to brush but parents need to do forcefully by educating the child. Please visit Pedodontist immediately...

Clinical examination by a dentist and some X-rays will be required for the proper diagnosis..... based on the information that you have mentioned, most probably those teeth can be saved and the attempt should be made to prevent their extraction before time..... Regards.....

Hello.. I am paediatric dentist and come across such conditions frequently..  When child have trauma due to fall or due to other reasons.. Immediately tretment should be provided.. X rays should be made to check the status of the roots and then we decide what treatment is required.. Wether we can save the tooth or not.. As u explained your daughter's condition.. We need to check x-ray first and thn we can proceed..  Thanx

Ok, First of all if the chipping is mild and had not broken the teeth too much or there is no pain neither it is shaking then it is mainly a esthetic concern which can be addressed by tooth colored fillings. A thorough examination is required. Secondly, if the kid is only 2 years and there are cavities in the front teeth please get it checked. In initial stages of Cavity non - invasive procedures like fillings and fluoride application can be done. If the cavities are too big or deep pulpectomy is suggested with or without acrylic crowns. Come out with an innovative idea to make brushing a pleasant experience for the child.
