Tips in Case of a Dental Emergency
Always handle the tooth by the crown, not the root (the part of the tooth below the gum) because you could damage cells that are vital for bone re-attachment. Other injuries inside the mouth including tears, puncture wounds and lacerations to the cheek, lips or tongue. You should clean the wound right away with warm water, and transport the injured person to a hospital emergency room for care. Tongue bleeding can be reduced by pulling the tongue forward and applying pressure to the wound with gauze.
Accidents happen, here are some tips for certain situations:
1. Knocked out a tooth?
