Q.

Voortand se kleur is grys

Dr, ons 30 maande oud dogtertjie het 2 keer geval en dan haar voortande gekap. Na die laaste val is die tand besig om te verkleur na grys. Ek gaan haar oor 2 weke tandarts toe neem, sal u vir my meer inligting kan gee oor die aangeleentheid?

it is most likely that the nerve of the tooth was damaged due to the trauma.
the teeth will most likely need to be removed. it is better in such cases not to wait 2 weeks to see a dentist as the fall could have fractured the teeth inside the gum
