Q.

Front teeth

Hi,
My boy is 22 months old and he had an accident.
He fell and hurted his one front teeth. His gums moved to the top of the root and the root is sticking out if I lift his lip. The teeth is not loose and the gums have no infection. He eat cold and warm food and brushes his teeth without any complaints. It happend 2 weeks ago. Will the gums ''grow'' back and cover the root? Should I take him to a dentist? Should I still apply anti-septic gum cream?
