My son will be 3 in early May. Last Sunday he fell and literally knocked his front tooth out. Luckily he did not loosen any other teeth, bite his lip or tongue or cause any damage to his adult teeth. My question is does he really have to go without a front tooth until the adult tooth grows in about 4 years or so? I think I notice his speech is a bit more slurred, but maybe I am imagining that. Does anyone have any experience with this happening to their child? I saw on a few other posts that broken teeth are 'fixed' in toddlers, but what about no tooth at all? Thanks for your help!
