    Broken toothed baby

    Yesterday my 14 th month old daughter fell over flat on her face and broke her front tooth

    Took her to Hospital where the Dentist put her in a straight jacket and performed a root canal ( It was terrible I almost had a heart attack )

    The Dentist said she was unable to affix a crown so she put a stainless steel sleeve over her tooth ...Now she looks like Jaws fro James Bond movies.


    Does anyone know of any alternatives to this ugly device ?

    ^ No idea mate...my kid's front teeth are totally fucked (one pulled out, one rotten away and one in it's way) he had the same problem (chipped the front two) but the doctor/dentist told us we couldn't do anything until he was like 4 years old.

    Pull it out maybe? His school pulled one out for him the other day and will do the others soon! I hope his next lot are better than this lot!

    That's really terrible, Re.

    Why did they do a root canal? Aren't those teeth scheduled to fall out and be replaced, anyway?

    Also, there are composite fillers they can use to fashion parts of a tooth from. I have one on one of my front teeth from a chip I got years ago. You can't tell the difference from looking at it. Composites are not strong enough for molars, but they're fine for incisors.

    ^ He's half English? I'm a shit Dad? Too much sugar? Don't clean his teeth enough?

    I think the enamel (sp?) went when he cracked the front two...now they're just being eaten away.

    It was awful.Blood everywhere screaming and crying . I felt like hitting the Doctors.

    I understand why Doctors are not allowed to work on Family Members.

    Yesterday I realised all the worry I must have caused my parents as a kid

    I feel 4 u buddy

    one of my kids fell over and busted a front tooth

    he was older than ur lil 'un though

    the main thing is to make sure that the second lot of front teeth come out straight

    I guess the dentist knows wot he's doing *(hoping)

    I suggest u take her to see an orthodontist m8

    good luck

    Re: Broken toothed baby

    ^ Well the dentist we took him to said we had to wait and the one at the school pulled them out. I think once the enamel is gone...is there much you can do? They are his first lot...so not the end of the world...but want to try to instill in him that he must clean his teeth a fair bit or suffer!!!

    Re: Broken toothed baby

    If the teeth get broken,,, or the enamel gets damaged in a fall

    it's much much harder, almost impossible, to stop 'em going bad

    jus make shua the 2nd ones come out straight 'n normal = vital
