    My DD did exactly the same 2 months ago. Came off bike and broke tooth on rocks. Couldn't find damn bit anywhere! Just a triangle left. Dentist rebuilt it using quick setting white stuff, filed it to shape and now looks good as new. Don't know how long it will last long term but hopefully it can be replaced as necessary if need be.

    hi wham my youngest ds did this too (my bath still has the chip to prove it!!) ... You can keep a full tooth in milk (wash it in milk the put it straight back in the hole) but with a chunk out of ot the only thing they can do is fill it ... if this doesnt work they then put a post in it (after my sons filling had been replaced 5 timees we went for this) and that gives a much more permanent filling... then somewhere between the ages of 16 and 18 they can cap it permanantly (apparently they wait for your face to stop growing before they do this!!) my son is now 13 and did this at 9 .... its such shame when the tooth has only just come through isnt it.... good luck!!!

    That's what they did with me slugbug. The porcelain caps are very good though, and they can match the colours really closely to your own teeth.

    Ooo poor chap! If a tooth should get completely knocked out, the best place to keep it (after a rinse if necessary) is actually back in your mouth - tuck it in a cheek and DON'T swallow it lol. If it's a kiddie's tooth and they are too upset to do that, you can put it in your own mouth if you're not squeemish!

    As it's a chunk of tooth he's lost, there's basically no way to stick it back on. The dentist should hopefully be able to rebuild it with some white filling material as the most simple type of repair. There may be an x-ray too, as the dentist might be concerned about whether the nerve will survive the bash - the tooth may get darker over time, but that can be solved with a veneer or crown when he's older.

    Probably not much point having a 'proper' extensive repair until he's fully grown, but try to get it done just before he's 18 so it's still free on the NHS (at the moment anyway.....)

    What a shame! Hope he's fixed up soon.

    Porlitle chap, i hope it isntto sharp.
    Brings back memories of when my second daughter was little, we went ice skating and she had trainer skates on, she was 3ish i think, anyway she fell on the seats roun the rink, blood everywere, i thought she knocked her tooth out, looked all over couldnt find it.
    This was late at night, she's an odd bod, went straight onto maccy Ds had a kids meal, then the next day i took her to the dentist who said he would hae to wait for te swelling to go own to assess the situation, so a week later back we went, i told him i was concerned re a lump just under her nostril, couldnt feel anything on the gum......anyway short of it is the tooth had been knock right back up into the gum, took ages to grow out, and it grew out right at the top of the gum, making her mouth bleed everytime it was knocked, took me ages to convince them to take it out, so thats what they did in the end under a general...she came straight out, into the hospital cafe and had cornish pasty and chips LOL.
    It made the second tooth grow out of line and they said she may need a brace, but it seems to be settling in nicely now...she is 13
