Oral emergencies happen a lot. For example, one or more teeth may knocked-out during an accident. The condition in which the tooth comes completely out of the jaw’s dental cavity is called “dental avulsion”. It is better for everyone, especially parents, to be prepared for such events. “Dental avulsion” is one of the few dental emergencies in which the client and the dentist’s speed in the treatment results are very important. In the face of this accident, you must calm the injured person; injured children need to be calm during such events.
Then find the tooth and remove it from the crown (white part). Avoid touching the root. The tooth is usually found at the accident site, but sometimes it has sunk into its cavity in the jaw (upper) and therefore may appear to be out of place. If the tooth you find is dirty, rinse it under cold running water for 10 seconds and then put it back in place. With a clean tissue, hold the tooth in place by biting. If it is impossible to place the tooth in the right place or if you are unable to do, put it in the milk. Special solutions may be available in emergency kits for this purpose, which is better than milk if available. If milk is not available to put the tooth, you can hold the tooth in the mouth (the injured person or even yourself) between the molars and the cheekbones until reaching the dentist. Saliva in a glass is also good for holding teeth, so do not use water to hold teeth. Go to the dental emergency center as soon as possible. If you get to the dentist quickly, there is a chance that the tooth will be put back in place. The dentist decides on the treatments needed for the extracted tooth based on the tooth’s developmental condition (open root end or closed-end) and when the tooth has been out of the cavity (less than an hour or more than an hour). The victim or patient should take the prescribed antibiotics regularly, eat soft foods for at least two weeks, and rinse their mouth twice daily with mouthwash (chlorhexidine 0.1%). Use soft toothbrushes to brush during recovery. Children whose teeth are missed due to trauma should be screened for tetanus and given a booster dose if the vaccine is not complete. Radiographic examinations need to continue in the long run. Your dentist may schedule appointments over the coming weeks and months that must be made at these times.
What To Do After A Hit To The Front Tooth?
1- Keep calm; your calmness will help the child more than anything else.
2- Take the tooth from the crown area and do not touch its root at all.
3- To clean the soil or other impurities, hold the tooth under a gentle stream of water for a few seconds. Note that the intensity of the high flow of water and the long holding of the underwater tooth also destroys the cells.
