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.

Call The Dental Barn in Hailsham East Sussex on 01323 325397  for further information or to make an appointment with one of our dentists or dental hygienists.
