My son of 7yrs broke 2 of his upper front teeth, the sight of it now is very urgly. Can it be dressed by a dentist now that he's still young or should I wait until adolescent before I do it? Secondly, if I decide to extract the teeth at his childhood, can it grow back?

Cindy,  I completely agree with Annie.  If these are adult teeth (at that age they probably are) I doubt they will let you extract them.  Broken teeth can be re-formed with the original root left intact.

But this is a health issue,  not a cosmetic one at this point - he's got exposed teeth nerves.  You really don't want the teeth to die.
