Children’s Dental Emergencies

What should I do in a dental emergency?

Have a look at our advice for common children’s dental accidents.

  1. Knocked out teeth – Place the tooth in a container of milk, salt water, or your child’s saliva (otherwise use plain water or cover with cling wrap). Don’t touch the root. Go to your dentist immediately – within 30 minutes preferably. If bleeding is profuse, or continues, go to the hospital emergency room.
  2. Broken tooth – Gently clean the dirt from the injured area with warm water. Apply a cold compression on to face to reduce swelling. Apply pressure to the bleeding area with a clean cloth, and go to your dentist as soon as possible.
  3. Bitten lip or tongue – Apply pressure to the bleeding area with a clean cloth. If swelling is present, use cold compress, and see your dentist as soon as possible. If bleeding is profuse, or continues, go to the hospital emergency room.
  4. In case of an injuryStay calm! Stop or control bleeding by applying pressure, and notify parents or caregiver. If bleeding is profuse head to the hospital emergency room, and see your dentist as soon as possible.
