Trauma or accident
Sometimes a severe impact to the face can lead to a broken tooth requiring urgent attention. Dental trauma can be very stressful for the individual and family members involved. Seeking immediate dental care and addressing the situation appropriately will deliver the best outcome by increasing the survival chance of the tooth.
Here are Essential Care Dental’s tips for managing dental trauma:
- Control any bleeding with a towel or cloth.
- If possible, locate and keep any broken teeth. Rinse them for 10 seconds under cold water to wash away any dirt or debris.
- Store the teeth in a container with milk or saliva.
- Contact us for emergency treatment. We’ll endeavour to make your appointment as soon as possible.
Remember, proper care in the early stages following injury greatly influences tooth survival. Our caring dentists at Essential Care Dental will deliver treatment that will best restore the confidence in your smile.
