Unexpected dental issues can be scary and frightening. If your child has an accident, please call our office as soon as possible. We will see your child in an appropriately timed fashion. The first 30 minutes after an accident are the most critical to treatment of a dental trauma.
If a permanent tooth is knocked out, gently rinse, but do not scrub the tooth under water. If possible, replace the tooth in the socket. If this is impossible, place the tooth in a glass of milk or wrap in a clean wet cloth. Call our office, and you will be instructed to come to the office immediately. If the tooth is fractured, please bring in any pieces that you can find.
