Tripped & Fell on My Face

I went out NY's eve and it was so cold and windy that I slipped and fell flat on my face . My hands were a bit bruised which are healing, and I bit my lip as a result, which is healing as well. I also felt I hit my front tooth as well. It hurt the day after but it does not really hurt now .

Based on anyone's experience, will my tooth turn black/gray? I think I hit it bad but it does not move, nor does it hurt anymore. It's been 3 days. I called my dentist and though I said it was an emergency, she could not fit me in and said to call back Monday. Would've she told me to come in right away if she thought it was bad? It doesn't move nor has it turned color. I brush without it hurting.

But being it's my front tooth I am worried. Will it turn black?

EDIT: TRIPPED is what I meant to write as a title...sorry

Re: Tripped & Fell on My Face

If your tooth doesn't move, nor hurt, I don't think that it will turn color. As long as it's solid in the socket, you will be ok.

Re: Tripped & Fell on My Face

i agree. it sounds like you dont have anything to worry about. but it sounded very painful to have gone through that
