Suggest treatment for bleeding due to hit on tooth

My two year old had a mouth injury on Friday resulting in a few of his teeth knocked loose and one particular one displaced. Dentist put it back and said no solid foods for a week. I can't get him to stop sucking his thumb...I'm worried it will impair his ability to heal properly. Also, he hit his tooth again today which cause it to bleed. Is there anything I should be concerned about with these two issues?

Hello,

Thanks for consulting HCM.

Read your query , as your child has injury in front tooth there is mobility and beeding due to periodontal ligament injury and as your dentist as advise you to avoid solid food , yes I will also suggest you No solid food chewing from front teeth and give him soft liquid diet , and you can apply ice pack on gums for bleeding and take care of him not to put thumb in mouth and consult your dentist after injury for examination of periodontal ligament and evaluation .


Hope this will help you.
Wishing him good health,
