Nothing: The tooth may straighten on its own. If it doesn't, there should be no problem with the tooth. If the tooth begins to discolor, however, it may need to be extracted as a change in color (the tooth becomes gray) means the nerve inside the tooth has died and the tooth may abscess.

Have Benadryl (diphenhydramine) on hand, and call 911 or take her to the emergency room if this reoccurs. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
At what age does preteens start growing my son has 13 and his like a ten year old but im tall what can I do?
