Emergency dental treatment for children
It is any parents worst nightmare when their child looses or chips a tooth in an accident.
If your child looses the whole tooth, the first thing to do is to keep the tooth moist immediately as we can often re-insert the tooth successfully.
Be sure to keep the tooth!
We recommend saliva (even placing the tooth back in socket!) or milk. Don’t wrap it up in a tissue as it will dry out.
If the tooth is chipped off then keep the broken piece to bring in as we may be able to bond it back to the tooth. If not then a filling may be required.
