My 13 month old toddler fell and broke his tooth, the pulp is exposed and the dentist visit wasn't great. I'm scare of a abscess. Help!
The dentist told me it look like he broke it to the root & the pulp is exposed. Without a xray she said his tooth is going to have to be pulled because he's going to get a abscess. And he cant get sedated, I dont want him to be woke. She said I could think about it, when I notice a abscess make a appointment & if he dont get a abscess by 18 months he can get a root canal & crown. she said repeatedly he's going to get a abscess. I dont want to wait & risk it but I don't want it pulled. I brush his 8 teeth & dab them with warm salt water but waiting 5 months is too risky. Advice please
