Dental First Aid
This past year, we’ve seen an increasing number of children come to the practice with trauma to their front adult teeth.
Simple dental first aid can save a tooth and prevent the need for more complex and invasive treatment.
I would like to share a few simple tips so that you’re prepared if you ever have to deal with someone who has knocked out their adult front tooth.
For children in particular, between the ages of 7 and 10, it’s more likely that they will knock out an entire tooth rather than chip or fracture the tooth. This is because roots do not full develop until at least 9 or 10 years.
