Dental Trauma

Unfortunately, dental trauma can occur when we least expect it. Should you be unlucky enough for a tooth to fracture from trauma (such as a fall or being knocked in the mouth by a young child), always attempt to find the broken pieces and take them with you when attending a dentist. Occasionally the pieces can be used to reconstruct the fractured area.

In the rare occurrence that a tooth is completely knocked out, there are certain things that you can do to improve the chances of it being saved.

Firstly, rinse the tooth under a running tap, but do NOT attempt to scrub it with a brush or your fingers. Then store the tooth in some milk. Finally, see your dentist immediately.
