Summer IS HERE AGAIN! AND THE BEAUTIFUL WEATHER MEANS MORE OUTDOOR ACITIVITES. KIDS ARE OUT THERE BIKING, SCOOTING AND RUNNING AROUND. … AND FALLING OFF THOSE BIKES AND SCOOTERS. DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO IF YOUR CHILD KNOCKS OUT A TOOTH? OR CHIPS ONE?
Here’s a handy little guideline for most dental emergency situations.
Rinse the area with warm water. Place a cold compress on the area to decrease chance of swelling.
For a small chip, be extra gentle with the tooth. Eat soft foods, take Tylenol or Motren for pain and call your pediatric dentist to determine the need to come in.
For a larger chip, look for the missing fragment. Keep it moist by placing It in water. Call your pediatric dentist immediately.
