What do you do when dental injuries occur?

What if you and some friends were playing an informal game of basketball and one of your friends was struck down by a hard jab to the mouth? Could you help?

What if you were the one to fall face down, only to find you were bleeding and had lost a tooth?

Would anyone with you know basic first aid?

It is important to be prepared in case such an accident takes place. The nation’s top dental associations including the Academy for Sports Dentistry (ASD), American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), and the American Dental Association (ADA), offer the following first aid tips to assist you in case an accident occurs:

Fractured/Broken tooth:

· Find the broken pieces, store in water or milk.

 · See dentist within24 hours – may be able to reattach the broken pieces of tooth.

· Analgesics for pain.

Displaced tooth:

·  See your dentist immediately.

· If the tooth is extruded (hangs down) try to reposition.

Knocked out tooth:

· See your dentist immediately – time is essential! For best results, replantation should be done within 5 – 10 minutes.

 · Upon locating the tooth, hold it by the crown (the wide part, not the pointed end/root).

· Rinse the tooth but avoid rubbing it or touching the root. Put the tooth back in its socket; cover with gauze or tissue and bite down to stabilize it. Or, briefly store the tooth in cold milk. Alternatively, spit in a cup and place the tooth in the cup.

· Do not let the tooth dry out. A tooth can usually be saved if cared for properly and re-implanted within an hour.
