What should I do after a facial impact?
Dental injury caused by an impact to the head should be treated immediately. If you experience unconsciousness, dizziness, confusion, nausea or vomiting after suffering a blow to the head, you need to seek immediate medical treatment at the closest hospital emergency department.
If a dental injury occurs without any of the above symptoms present, then apply gentle pressure to any mouth bleeds with a clean piece of gauze. If the bleeding doesn’t stop within 20 minutes, seek immediate medical treatment at your nearest hospital.
Call Advance Family dental urgently and we will assess the injury and provide emergency treatment. Follow up visits can be arranged if needed to perform any necessary follow up treatment.
How should I handle a knocked out tooth?
Be careful not to touch the root of the knocked out tooth. Handle it only by the white shiny part (known as the crown) and rinse the root in milk or in the saliva of the person it came from. If you’re unable to re-insert the tooth, store it in the mouth of the injured person for the best chance of keeping the cells on the root alive.
Call us straight away. It may be possible for us to fix the tooth within an hour after the accident.
What should I do about a loose tooth?
If your tooth hasn’t been completely knocked out but feels loose, seek an emergency appointment at our Central Coast clinic as soon as possible. If you act quickly, our dentists may be able to reset a loose tooth. We’ll also take x-rays to determine whether the tooth is likely to heal naturally or if further treatment is required.
