    Default Discoloured tooth a few weeks after an accident?

    My 2.5 year old's top front tooth has suddenly turned grey, so obviously it is the result of a big knock. A few weeks ago she fell off a toy onto the tiles and whacked her teeth onto her lip which resulted in blood everywhere and a swollen lip etc, but no (at the time) visible damage to her teeth, or so it seemed. A few days ago I noticed a slight darkness to her tooth, almost like a line of grey and now the whole tooth has turned grey

    It looks so unsightly, but I'm glad it's her baby tooth I guess.

    Is this normal a few weeks after the accident? I always thought when a tooth got damaged in that way that it would discolour not long after the event, but I guess I was wrong.

    I'm going to book her into the Dentist to get her tooth checked out, but in the meantime has anyone else's child's tooth/teeth discoloured a few weeks after the accident?

    Ds2 jumped off the couch and slammed his mouth onto his knee a couple of weeks ago, sounds like a similar injury we've had his teeth checked just in case and I'm still checking daily (worry wart here) and he doesn't have any discolouration.

    I know that doesn't really help but just posting so you have a comparison. Like you said, take her to the dentist just to check.

    I hope it's all ok.

    My DD was riding on end of trolley when she was 2.5 slipped and banged her mouth. No blood or fat lip but bit her tongue....or so I thought. The next week her tooth went an opaque colour then grey.
    Dentist said it was probably nerve damage and hard to tell what the outcome would be....stay grey / fall out / cause absess / go white again.
    It's a year later and it's a nearly back to normal tooth colour. Changed colours for about 6 months but was only dark grey for about a month.

    I had a black tooth as a child after A fall. It never ended up falling out on its own and had to be removed by the dentist. Once removed the adult tooth cAme through quickly and all was fine. But there are lots of photos of me with this horrible tooth!

    I had grey teeth as a kid from knocking my teeth on the trampoline.

    DS got a grey tooth (can't remember what he did now) but eventually it just went back to being normal colour. Fingers crossed this happens for you too.

    When I was 3 or 4 I fell head first off a ride on car into concrete. My front two top teeth got the brunt of it and were black... It was awful. They eventually fell out and my adult teeth are fine.

    I had two grey front teeth as a teenager after a fall in the gym at school. It's because the nerve is dead. I ended up having to get them pulled out and crowns put it. It was awful as an adolescent walking around with grey teeth but they wanted to wait until my jaw grew as big as it was going to before putting crowns in.
    Lucky it's your bubs baby tooth so it will fall out anyway. Not much the dentist can do about it, except pull it out.

    Yeah, I'm pretty certain it's a dead nerve . It would be lovely if it reverted back to white like some others here have said, I guess time will tell.

    Thanks for your input everyone.
