Dental First Aid
When a tooth is knocked out, you will want to stop the bleeding as soon as possible, which is done by rolling a square piece of clean gauze and placing it sideways in the gap where your tooth used to be. Add pressure by biting the gauze gently and replace when the gauze is soaked. Now that the bleeding is under control, it is important to locate the tooth and handle it by its tip – never the root. If there is tissue or debris attached to the root, make sure that it remains in place, since this may be tissue from the ligament required to fully reattach. Simply rinse in cold water and put it in a clean vessel with some cold milk. If milk and containers are not available, rinse the tooth and push it down in your cheek pocket. Once the bleeding is stopped and the tooth located, call the emergency dentist nearest to you at the time of the incident even if this is not your regular dentist. The emergency dentist will stabilize the tooth, if possible, and then recommend that you return to your usual doctor for further care.
Tooth chips and fragments should be collected, rinsed, and brought with you to your appointment. In some cases, these tooth fragments can be bonded back into place using a white filling product. If you aren’t able to find the chips, your dentist will advise you of your options which may be along the lines of veneers or bonding to bring your tooth back to its ideal colour and form. Your dentist wants you to have the best possible outcome, so we encourage you to ask as many questions as you need in order to feel content with your decision.
The potential for accidents to occur is ever-present, but we shouldn’t let it determine our lives or cause unnecessary worry. In the event of an emergency, your dentist will be there to support you and your oral health.
