Knocked-out tooth

Paskal Dental

Knocked-out teeth account for approximately 15% of children’s dental emergencies. It is important to find the tooth and rinse off any dirt or debris under cool running water. Do not scrub the tooth or remove any tissue. If possible, gently replace the tooth in its socket and hold it in place with a finger. If this is not possible, put the tooth in cup of milk, saline, cool water or within the mouth between the cheek and gum. Do not allow the tooth to dry out. The ADA recommends bringing the injured person to the dentist within 30 minutes.


Fractured tooth

Rinse the mouth with water to clean the area. A cold compress applied to the cheek near the fracture can help reduce swelling. Visit the dentist immediately.


Cut lip, gum, tongue or cheek

Paskal Dental

Clean the wound with a clean cloth, then apply pressure to the area to stop bleeding. If the bleeding stops, apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. If persists, seek emergency medical attention.


Lost filling

Toothache

Using dental floss, attempt to carefully remove the objects by guiding the floss between the teeth. Avoid cutting the gums. Do not attempt to remove the objects using a sharp instruments or a toothpick, as it could splinter in the gums. If dental floss does not help, visit the dentist as soon as possible.
