Keep Your Cool in a Dental Emergency!
It can be scary, but use these tips to help you make smart, educated choices in this situation!
- Hold it by the crown, not the root
- Rinse the tooth with water, but do not clean with soap
- If the tooth is not cracked or damaged, try to put it back in the original socket and have your child hold it in place by biting on gauze
- If you cannot put the tooth back in its socket, put it in a cup containing your child’s saliva or milk
Chips and Fractures
If your little surfer has a sore, uncomfortable tooth, we recommend the following:
- Gently clean the site of the pain.
- Clear out any food that has been stuck in or around the teeth using floss.
- Allow them to swirl warm water or warm saltwater around in their mouth.
- Avoid exposing the gum or tooth to heat.
- Avoid exposing the gum or tooth to heat.
