06 Jun First Aid After Your Child Breaks His Tooth
Children break their teeth from chewing hard substances, playing without a mouth-guard and other accidents. If your child has a broken tooth don’t be alarmed. Here’s how to save your child’s broken tooth.
– First, call the emergency line of the nearest dentist for medical assistance.
– As first aid, clean the tooth and gently press it back to its original position.
– Your child might need x-ray to determine the extent of damage and stabilising wires to secure the tooth.
