Coming into winter where most sports are typically contact sports, the risk of trauma increases and so does the number of “accidents”. Any trauma to the teeth should be assessed by a dentist as soon as possible, however in the meantime in the event of a tooth being knocked out:
- Find the tooth and rinse it to remove any dirt
- Place the tooth either in saliva or milk or keep it in your mouth between your cheek and gum or under your tongue
- Get to the dentist as the tooth has a better chance of being placed back successfully if done as soon as possible
At Church St Dental, we welcome emergency patients. If you have an incident of dental trauma, give us a call on 4351 1642 and we will fit you in ASAP.
