Q.

Broken tooth

Hi, my son who is 9 yrs and 2 months fell off from fast moving bicycle. From that impact he broke one of his front tooth, a small portion of that tooth is still intact.
He has already removed his milk teeth.
I wouldl like to know that If the remaining one is rooted out,is it possible that it can grow back fully considering his age.
If it won''t grow back naturally what are the other options we can consider, is there a stimulant wich can assist with the growing process?
