Wobbly upper front teeth due to injury, four teeth are loose, cant eat solid food

My daughter is 4 years 4 months old. 2 months back she bumped in the centre table but there was no bleeding in her mouth . Later that day she told that her upper front tooth was wobbly. I went to the dentist . But they said keep an eye if color changes. It has been 2 months already the color has not changed but now all four teeth in the front of the upper gum are loose. Appointment is not available at the moment. The teeth are hurting because she is not able to eat even a biscuit. Just soft food. I am really worried. Is this some sort of deficiency? Please help me. Regards

welcome to HCM
of course everyone matter for their childrens. actually the dentist advised you for colour changes were meant that your daughter's tooth might have got infection aur may have lost its blood supply. but if for 2 months if there are no colour changes then it means there is nothing to worry about.
now your concern about the loosening of the upper four gums is a natural process leading to the appearane of her permenant teeth. it is normal for this age and all her teeths will be replaced by the permenant ones. however she is in a growing age so she may need calcium supplement to enhance her growth process. meanwhile use soft diet which can readily swallow.
with regards

i read your problem ,your daughter bumped in the center table,but there was no bleeding at that moment..........
later the day she felt her upper front tooth loose..........
your dentist gave you right advice.......
nothing to get worried.........
if there is no color change,there is no infection or trauma to that tooth.......
now problem is this she has all four upper front teeth loose........
it is quite normal at this age,because her milk teeth will get replaced with permanent teeth..............
permanent teeth are pushing her milk teeth due to which she is feeling her upper front teeth loose...........
so do not get worried,every thing is normal...........
take care
