What You Should Do if Your Child Chips, Loosens or Loses a Tooth

If your child suffers an injury to their teeth they need to see a dentist straight away.

Main points:

– Fast action is essential, insert a loose tooth back into the socket.

– A dentist will assess and repair the damage.

– A tooth or piece of tooth should be transported to the dentist in milk.

As childhood trauma to teeth can damage nerves and roots over time, it is important to let your dentist know of any incidents.

“When an adult tooth is knocked loose, a dentist will need to secure it quickly.”
