How to Handle Children’s Dental Emergencies
The following are some general guidelines to follow for common dental problems:
For a knocked-out permanent (adult) tooth, keep it moist at all times by placing it in a container or milk.
Then, go to your dentist’s office right away. A temporary (baby) tooth does not need to be moistened, but, if possible, it should be found to bring to your Wodonga dentist.
For a chipped/cracked tooth, immediately rinse the mouth with warm water to clean the area.
Apply cold compress on the face to reduce any swelling. See your Wodonga dentist as soon as possible.
Toothache or Dental Pain
For toothaches, rinse the mouth with lukewarm water. Use dental floss to gently remove any food lodged between the teeth.
Note: Do not put aspirin on your child’s aching tooth or gums as it may burn the gum tissue. If the pain persists, contact your Wodonga dentist.
Bitten Cheek, Lip, or Tongue
If your child has accidentally bitten their lip, cheek, or tongue, clean the area gently with water and apply a cold compress to reduce or avoid swelling.
Contact your Wodonga dentist to help determine how serious the bite is.
