My 4 yr old fell while running bent over pushing a Tonka truck....grazed one of his front teeth, gum, lip and nose.....so much bleeding! The tooth pretty much went grey straight away, within same day. Dentist did an X-ray and as it appears to not have moved, no sign of infection under gum and was not hurting him they have left it to prevent the adult tooth coming down early. They are not expecting issues with the adult tooth based on X-ray but I guess we will have to wait and see...
The paediatric dentist who operated on my DS's tooth at the Royal Children's Hospital (see above post of mine) said that it's actually better to remove a dead tooth as it can get infected and affect the adult tooth which is already growing in the gums. If I were you I'd keep a very close eye on that tooth. Oh and in our experience the baby tooth being taken out does NOT make the adult tooth come through early. DS's adult front teeth came through at exactly the same rate, despite the fact that one of his baby teeth was fractured, and subsequently extracted, at 23 months. He had that gap for 5 years.
