Please see some our our helpful tips.
If a permanent tooth has been knocked out, it is optimal to get the tooth re-implanted within 30 minutes if possible. Marietta Childrens Dentist Here is what to do: Hold the tooth by the crown, not the root. Do not try to clean the tooth or handle it unnecessarily. If the tooth is not dirty or fractured, put it back in the socket and have the child keep it there by biting on gauze or a clean cloth. Do not worry if you do not place it exactly right, because it is better to be in the socket than not. If the tooth is dirty, fractured, or if you can’t get it in the socket, put it in cup with milk or the child’s saliva, and take the child and the tooth to the dentist as quickly and safely as possible. If the child is old enough, he can keep the tooth in his mouth to transport it. While having a permanent tooth re-implanted within 30 minutes is the best course of treatment, there are many documented cases of successful re-implantations after the tooth has been out for a longer period of time.
If, for any reason, you cannot make contact with our office within 30 minutes, or you are out of town, follow the instructions above and go to your nearest emergency room. If a primary or baby tooth has been knocked out, we do not recommend saving it. Trying to re-implant a primary tooth creates too great a risk to the forming permanent teeth. We recommend that you take your child to the dentist as soon as possible to make sure that no additional damage has been done to other teeth or the jaw from the impact that knocked out the tooth.

Cut or bitten tongue, lip or cheek • If your child has cut or bitten her tongue, lip, or cheek, there can be bleeding, swelling and discomfort. • Here are our recommended actions: • Apply direct pressure on the bleeding area using a clean cloth. • If swelling is present, use a cold compress to reduce the pressure and reduce the discomfort – sometimes a popsicle works well for children. • Take Tylenol® and Motrin® at age and weight appropriate dosages to reduce the swelling and relieve the discomfort. • Check the area to see if there is a fractured tooth with a fragment possibly embedded in the cheek or tongue. If you need help checking the area, go to the dentist as soon as possible. Sandy Springs Childrens Dentist
If your child has an injury to the jaw, take him or her to the emergency room for immediate care as necessary, and come to the dentist as soon as possible. The dentist will check for fractures in the jaw and perform a dental exam to check for secondary fractures in the teeth. Depending on the extent of the injury, the dentist may need to consult with an oral surgeon.
