  • yes she will need a few stiches if her teeth went through and through (her lip) and it could of jammed her top teeth and broke the root if this is the case I would go to a pediatric dentist , tell him what happen and they can do an xray to establish if her roots are active or dying... This will be a big problem if they are dying.. her teeth will go black and fall out which really isnt a huge deal but it will leave a gap before the other teeth are ready to come and could really cause her jaw line damage and shift... DEFINITLY GO if you havent yet!!
