Q.

Son' s tooth is turning blue / grey

My son is 2 years and 8 months old now. Recently we started seeing his left front tooth turning blue / grey-ish.

He had a trip about a month ago and fell on the laminated floors. Can the tooth be damaged? We have scheduled a dentist appointment just to be safe next week

This tooth discolouration usually follows on an injury such as occured with your son. As it is his milk tooth still it is not a serious problem, but it is still worthwhile seeing the dentist.
