My child fell and cut the inside of his lip with his front teeth. Will this affect his developing adult teeth?
The main factors that determine whether or not your child's adult teeth will be affected include his age and how severe the injury is. Take your child to the dentist as soon as possible so that his teeth and gums can be checked for any wobbliness, swelling or discolouration.
