The mouth is the fastest part of the body to heal.
It is unnecessary to stitch the tongue back together even when your child has bit nearly completely through the tissue. It will heal on its own as its nearly impossible to stitch.
The aforementioned does not mean that the tongue will heal fast enough to spare you trip to the pediatrician, a looooong night, lots of tears and NO sleep…(for mother AND child)
Any guesses who the lucky one is that is now consuming a steady diet of popsicles?
